Men’s campaign: never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women

Today is White Ribbon Day.  Men are actively campaigning and committing themselves to this statement:

I pledge never to commit, condone, or remain silent about men’s violence against women in all its forms.

Restoring Dignity is a great resource for religious and non-religious people who want to learn more.  It looks at different traditions and teachings.

Myth: Violence against women is religiously sanctioned.
FACT: No faith condones violence against women or the degradation of women’s dignity.

“Ever since I was a wee boy in the playground I’ve hated violence. Violence against anyone. But I’m particularly opposed to violence against women: It’s the action of a coward. I’m dead against it.”  Brian Cox, Actor (from White Ribbon Campaign)

White Ribbon Day has lots more ideas and resources, including Restored (Christian resources) and Islam and Domestic Violence.
