White Ribbon Run 2015: Break the Silence, End the Violence

What do you think about violence against women?

According to the United Nations Women, 1 in 3 women across the world are or have been abused. That's over a billion people.

The All Women's Action Society (AWAM) is calling for men and women alike to break the silence and end the violence.

On Sunday, 22 November 2015, White Ribbon Run 2015 will be held at Padang Merbok, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Show your support by standing with other adults and children at the start line before the 7:00 a.m. flag off, and run 3 km or 7 km with family and friends.

There will be family-friendly activities to look forward to after the race too. Check out last year's event video to get a glimpse of what to expect.

The White Ribbon Campaign

The awareness-raising social run is held in conjunction with White Ribbon Day on 25 November.

The world's largest movement of men and boys working to end violence against women and girls, the White Ribbon Campaign promotes gender equality, healthy relationships, and a new vision of masculinity.

Believing that men and boys should be part of the solution to end gender-based violence, AWAM hopes to provide a platform for males to break their silence and proactively engage with this worrying social issue.
