Fife launch their White Ribbon Webpage!

Fife Domestic and Sexual Abuse Partnership in conjunction with White Ribbon Scotland, announce the launch of White Ribbon Fife webpage.

The White Ribbon Campaign seeks to end Violence Against Women, encouraging men to wear a white ribbon badge in show of their support.  The campaign runs in over 70 countries world-wide with Fife Council actively working with White Ribbon Scotland to gain White Ribbon Fife status in Fife.

As Kenny Selbie, the Chair of the White Ribbon Fife Steering Group explains:

 “The launch of the White Ribbon Fife webpage is a significant step in our progress toward gaining White Ribbon status.  It provides an easy way for all people in Fife to connect with the campaign, sign up and pledge their support.  

Violence against women is harmful to individuals, their families and to society as a whole.  We want to support men and women to challenge and change attitudes and stereotypes that enable violence against women to thrive.

I would urge members of the public to access the website, make a pledge and join us in supporting the campaign to end violence against women in Fife.”
