I detest violence towards women. How come various gender bias campaigns such as this white ribbon rubbish target men when no mention is made about the vicious female violence and abuse which is escalating around the Western world? How come female assaults male is not written into criminal law? How come the Family Court disregards malicious accusations made by a pathological lying mother? How come the male suicide rate for male clients of the Family Court is alarming?How come we don't have a Ministry for the status of men you gender bias feminazi jackbooted man hater? You know where to shove your white ribbon lady!
White Ribbon Day condemns violence
Celebrities, politicians and high-ranking police officers will condemn violence against women as part of White Ribbon Day.
More than 200 events are being held across Australia on Friday to mark the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.
Minister for the Status of Women, Kate Ellis, said men and women needed to be part of the campaign.
"Nearly one in three Australian women experience physical violence since the age of 15 and almost one in five women are victims of sexual violence," she said.
"We need to come together - men and women - to support the victims of violence and importantly, to say loud and clear that violence against women is not something that we will tolerate in Australia."
In Sydney, NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione is leading a white walk against violence, where participants will swear never to commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women.
Federal MPs Kevin Rudd, Joe Hockey and Peter Garrett have lent their support to White Ribbon Day, along with retired rugby league star Hazem El Masri, comedian Wil Anderson and television personality David Koch.
The UN General Assembly in 1999 declared November 25 as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, with a white ribbon as its symbol.
White Ribbon Day began in Australia in 2003, and is Australia's only national male-led violence prevention campaign.
