Although we speak out strongly against domestic and family violence as a society, it continues because, as individuals, we often choose to stay silent. When confronted with the signs of abusive behaviour, we can make excuses and downplay our instinct to step in.
Domestic and family violence won’t go away by itself – it needs our intervention to break the cycle. It needs everyday people to take responsibility for learning the signs and taking action to stop domestic and family violence.
Help create awareness and demonstrate the unacceptability of male violence against women by wearing a purple ribbon lapel pin and placing purple ribbon magnets on vehicles, and encourage others to do the same. But it doesn’t have to stop there – keep the campaign going and show your support by wearing a purple ribbon every day.
Everyone can wear a ribbon and everyone can help spread the message that violence of any kind is unacceptable. Men, women and children are all encouraged to support this campaign. Violence is rooted in inequality. Help us create equal ground to prevent it.
