White Ribbon Campaign

On International Women's Day, 8th March, EducAid Lumley launched its White Ribbon Campaign.
The White Ribbon Campaign is an international campaign of men working to end violence against women.
An initial 31 young men committed to upholding women's human rights:
-to stop discrimination against women
-to stop early marriage
-to stop female genital mutilation
-to stop wife battering
-to stop sexual harassment

They will work with partners in Nottingham and elsewhere, with similar aims, and organise meetings, campaigns and sensitisation amongst men who want to be part of the solution to end this universal problem.
