St Joseph’s College Students Support Local Campaign against Domestic Abuse and all other Forms of Gender Based Violence The Sociology Students at St Joseph’s College have given their support to the local White Ribbon Campaign which is being co-ordinated by the Domestic Abuse and Violence Against Women Partnership (DAVAWP). Following an input from the DAVAWP on Domestic Abuse and other forms of Gender Based Violence, the Students further researched the issues discussed as well as the aims of the White Ribbon Campaign and decided to have a stall at the school with awareness raising materials for a week. As a result, 161 new supporters (148 Students, 12 teachers and 1 Parent) joined the local White Ribbon Campaign and signed the pledge “to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women in all its forms”
A domestic violence incident is recorded every 10 minutes in Scotland with nearly 50,000 incidents reported in 2011-12.
