King’s Lynn-based domestic abuse charity the Pandora Project is supporting a national campaign to end violence against women.

The annual White Ribbon Campaign encourages men and boys to promise never to commit, excuse or remain silent about male violence against women. 

Supporters wear or display a white ribbon to highlight the issue and White Ribbon  Day, on Wednesday, marks the start of  the international 16 Days of Action Against Domestic Violence.

Charities have reported an increase in violence, harassment and abuse towards women during the pandemic and campaign organisers said this year’s campaign was more important than ever.

The Pandora Project is encouraging people to display a white ribbon and get it seen by as many people as possible, whether it is online or in their window.
