Gender-Based Violence Framework Helps Broaden Vision for the Massachusetts White Ribbon Day Campaign

Update - JDI has reworked the pledge language slightly to continue to articulate our analysis and commitment to ending men’s violence against women as well as all gender-based violence. We heard from many who appreciate the broader platform of GBV for the reasons articulated below. We also heard from others who want to be crystal clear that this campaign continues to invite men and boys to address violence against women – from rape and sexual harassment to domestic violence. By combining these terms, we aim to both be inclusive and specific at the same time. We appreciate the feedback and welcome a continued dialogue about the mission and vision of the Massachusetts WRD.
