16 Days of Activism NIDAS #MakeThePromise Campaign
What is White Ribbon Day 2021?
White Ribbon UK is part of the global White Ribbon movement to end male violence against women by engaging with men and boys, changing cultures and raising awareness. This year the leading message is #AllMenCan. On White Ribbon Day Thursday 25 November, and the 16 days to end violence against women that follow, we are asking people in their communities, organisations and workplaces to come together and say ‘no’ to violence against women. The #AllMenCan campaign aims to drive conversations about the role men must play in building a safer world for women. Find out more here; www.whiteribbon.org.uk/
What is 16 Days of Activism?
Every year the United Nations calls for people across the globe to take action to end gender-based violence for 16 Days of Activism. Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread human rights violations in the world. The global theme for this year’s 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, which will run from 25 November to 10 December 2021, is “Orange the world: End violence against women now!” Find out more here www.unwomen.org/en/what-we-do/ending-violence-against-women/take-action/16-days-of-activism
NIDAS #MakeThePromise Campaign
As part of White Ribbon Day 2021 and #16DaysOfActivism we are launching our #MakeThePromise campaign which will focus on the importance of speaking out and breaking the silence around domestic abuse. We are inviting you to #MakeThePromise by making a pledge explaining why you believe it’s crucial to speak out against male violence against women. Don’t worry, we will provide the template sign and give you some ideas on how to get started.
We recognise that not all men commit violence against women but #AllMenCan can make a difference and be part of the solution. We believe #AllMenCan drive conversation about the role men must play in building a safer world for women. Throughout the 16 Days of Activism we will be sharing #16Ways men can take action against male violence against women. We are asking your business or organisation to get involved and support us by challenging harmful masculine norms that encourage violence among other men.
