White Ribbon Day #teachourboys #kidspot


Tomorrow is White Ribbon Day. 

White Ribbon is Australia's only male-led campaign to end violence against women.

The statistics of violence towards women is incredibly heartbreaking. This year, 77 women have lost their lives due to violence. THIS NEEDS TO STOP!!!

Kidspot has a campaign called #teachourboys.

It's about telling your little men that violence is never the answer...raising our sons to respect women (and everyone) and to reach out if you are aware of violence happening to women. 

I know that White Ribbon is directed at violence towards women, however, violence by any gender- towards any gender - is NOT ACCEPTABLE! 

Physical and emotional abuse is despicable. Let's do our best to teach the next generations kindness and respect.
