T V Edwards is backing the international campaigns 16 Days of Action Against Gender Violence, the White Ribbon Campaign and Tower Hamlets Council’s Domestic Abuse, no excuse campaign, by supporting the council in a series of awareness-raising events across the borough.
The council’s domestic violence team is running public events, offering information and support about violence against women and girls. TV Edwards is pleased to be contributing to the community domestic violence training with a seminar on protective orders in family proceedings and volunteering on the community outreach stalls
From November 25 to December 10 Tower Hamlets Council are asking the whole community to condemn violence against women by wearing a white ribbon and signing a pledge not to hurt others.
As many as one in four women, experience some form of domestic violence at some point in their lives. On average 2 women a week are killed by a male partner or former partner: this constitutes around one-third of all female homicide victims
Domestic violence is any incident of threatening behaviour, violence or abuse (psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional) between adults who are, or who have been, intimate partners or family members, regardless of gender or sexuality. This includes violence such as female genital mutilation (FGM), so-called ‘honour’ crimes and forced marriage,
