Eradicate Violence Against Women NOW

International Day for the Eradication of Violence Against Women is TODAY; wear those white ribbons through the 10th please. Although this is primarily a campaign by and for men, women may also take the pledge. "I pledge never to commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women or girls."  

For those who don't know, violence against women ALWAYS increases during the holidays and at times of stress and separation from public routines.  Silence Kills.  Report violence to local law enforcement whether the victim(s) want you to or not.  Better to lose a friend than see a friend lose their life.  And always make it clear to law enforcement if they are dismissive that you expect them to act, that condoning violence by failing to act is UNACCEPTABLE.
