WHITE RIBBON DAY

White Ribbon Day was created by a handful of Canadian men in 1991 on the second anniversary of one man's massacre of 14 women in Montreal. They began the White Ribbon Campaign to urge men to speak out against violence against women.












OUR STRENGTH IS NOT FOR HURTING

In 1999, the United Nations General Assembly declared November 25 the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (IDEVAW) and the White Ribbon has become the symbol for the day.

This is very special to me. I had never heard of White Ribbon Day. Nice to know it isn't just women who are fighting against violence against women. Thank you.
