Men Against Violence Against Women conference – 6th December 07 – Hamilton, Scotland

October 22, 2007

A conference organised by Doorway, South Lanarkshire Partnership on Domestic Abuse and Violence Against Women

6th December 07
Banqueting Hall, Council HQ, Almada Street, Hamilton

Men’s partners, friends, sisters and daughters lives are damaged by violence and abuse. The aim of the conference is to examine why violence against women is also a men’s issue. Men can help create a culture where the behaviour of a minority, who treat women with abuse or violence, becomes unacceptable.

This conference, organised by the Men’s Health Forum Scotland, took place on Friday 11th May 2007 at Glasgow City Chambers. I had a White Ribbon Scotland stand there selling ribbons and distributing information. The event really helped me to meet a lot of excellent supportive people. Presentations and discussions from the day are now online and freely available to download.
