The new White Ribbon Day oath goes something like this: I will stand up, speak out and act to prevent men’s violence against women.
So important, such a huge shift in the way that we have previously chosen to deal with domestic violence. It has been the unspoken, hush-hush horror that not many are willing to confront. For good reason too, if you are on the receiving end of any violence or bullying. It is scary and surreal, and very hard to comprehend or truly understand what it is like to suddenly find yourself in this reality when it previously seemed like something that only happened to ‘other people.’
