Davies to become Ambassador for White Ribbon

Today I met with the White Ribbon Campaign UK, a global movement to help end male violence against women.


It’s not acceptable that in the UK, on average, two women are killed by their partner or a former partner every week.  It needs to stop.  I support the White Ribbon Campaign to take a stand against all male violence against women and girls and to encourage other men and boys to do the same.


Today I pledged to become an ambassador for the campaign, to help inform men and boys how they can play a role in reducing male violence against women through changing attitudes and culture. It’s important that men and boys realise that male violence against women and girls is predominantly a male issue.  Some men and boys don’t realise that language that denigrates, belittles or disempowers women is part of the problem.  It’s the responsibility of us all to prevent violence, to know how to help, and to encourage other men and boys to treat women and girls with respect. I look forward to speaking to Swansea schools on this vital issue.
