The Government has a range of initiatives to tackle violence against women, and many local authorities treat it as a priority concern.
"No woman should live in fear of violence, and every girl should grow up knowing she is safe, so that she can have the best start in life." - Theresa May.
However there are still serious gaps in the provision of services to women who have faced violence and a lot more work to be done on awareness raising and prevention.
Our elected representatives need to hear that we want them to act to end violence against women.
Email your MPs and Councillors and ask them to sign the White Ribbon pledge and to do everything within their powers to eliminate violence against women. You can also ask if their local council is working towards becoming a White Ribbon Authority, or if there are any men who would be interested in becoming a WRC Ambassador.
To check if they are already accredited, check our list of White Ribbon Accreditations.
