Playing as one team for White Ribbon Day

Speaking ahead of White Ribbon Day 2022 this Friday 25th November, Cllr Helen Foster-Grime, Liberal Democrat Cabinet Member with responsibilities including equality and diversity, said: “The focus of the vital all year round White Ribbon campaign is to ensure men and boys themselves promise to take responsibility for calling out abuse, harassment and aggressive behaviour towards women.

“This year White Ribbon Day falls at the beginning of the FIFA men’s World Cup, and sadly data shows that domestic abuse rates increase by 38% when England lose a match. We need to start playing as one team on this, lads, and urge everyone not to stay silent to keep women and girls safe! It’s our game too!”
