Lucy supports the White Ribbon Campaign

IMG_9818.JPG.ashx.jpgThis week in Parliament Lucy joined former Rugby League star Ikram Butt, to show her support for the White Ribbon Campaign (WRC). Ikram is the only Muslim to have represented England at Rugby League, is one of White Ribbon campaign's busiest ambassadors.

The WRC is the UK branch of the global campaign to ensure men take more responsibility for reducing the level of violence against women.

Last year around 1.2 million women were victims of domestic violence in Britain. The WRC works to highlight abuse against women and to encourage men to join with women’s organisations to help prevent it.

The campaign is urging men and boys to wear a ribbon for one or two weeks, from November 25 the International Day for the Eradication of Violence Against Women. Wearing a white ribbon is a personal pledge never to commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women.
