INMO becomes partner/ambassador for White Ribbon Campaign.
The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO), through its General Secretary, Liam Doran, has become an ambassador for the White Ribbon Campaign. This campaign, which seeks to prevent any violence by men, towards women, is now a worldwide initiative.
The launch, yesterday, in Ireland was, in addition to the INMO, supported by a number of other civic bodies including the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU), SIPTU, the ASTI, the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) and the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU).
Yesterday's launch also marked sixteen days of events, across the globe, geared to highlight this continuing, but unacceptable, manifestation still prevalent amongst a minority of men.
For further information please see White Ribbon Campaign.

The White Ribbon Campaign went Europe-wide on 29th of November promoted by the European Institute of Gender Equality. The Men’s Development Network is an actor in EIGE. Please sign up in support of the campaign so that the men in the European Parliament will take notice of it and promote it.
With the MEPs support more men will start working to end men's violence against women and get involved in promoting gender equality. In particular get your men friends to sign in support of this campaign.
