Most men are not violent towards women, but many of us ignore the problem, or see it as something which doesn't have anything to do with us. We need to join women and women's organisations in taking action to end the problem.
Take a stand against violence now and sign our personal pledge never to commit, condone or remain silent about men's violence against women.
