Men of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire! You can help to keep local women safe.
Nearly 90% of survivors of domestic and sexual violence are women. Locally, 30,000 will experience domestic abuse. 9 in 10 perpetrators of abuse against women are men.
Most men do not use violence against women, but all men can help to end it. Will you?
Take action to end male violence against women and girls.
Stand up against abuse.
Promote a commitment to never use, excuse or remain silent about violence against women. Join the 30,000 men who have already pledged against abuse at whiteribbon.org.uk and wear a white ribbon to show your support.
Support women who need help
If you think a woman is being hurt by a partner or ex, do something. Call the 24-hour domestic and sexual violence helpline on 0808 800 0340 and find out how to help her safely (the helpline is run by Women’s Aid Integrated Services).
Challenge other men.
When men are disrespectful about women, speak out. Get used to saying “that’s not okay” when you hear sexist jokes from friends, family and colleagues. Misogyny supports abusive attitudes: let others know that you won’t tolerate it.
