Domestic Abuse: The Sixteen Days










The Sixteen Days to End Violence Against Women are upon us. White Ribbon Day has come and gone, yet where is the press coverage? Where are all the white ribbons?

It's not too late. The endless fight to prevent violence against women worldwide is in desperate need of support. In the UK funding for domestic abuse services is being cut. Rates of teenage girls suffering from domestic violence, perpetrated by their boyfriends, remains high. This is not a new issue. Yet it persists.

The UN is conducting a campaign called Say No to Violence Against Women. It coincides with a flurry of drives to raise awareness, and to raise money, to combat these crimes. You can donate here, or pledge to take action here.

Domestic violence. It's not normal, it's not acceptable. Say No.
