Sorry people but I just have to post this topic again. Trying to get people involved so hopefully my cheekiness may actually pay off.

This is the one you do need as it will take you straight to the homepage.Smile

Now for explanations, the simpler solution is to actually pay a visit to this site but here goes anyway.

The United Nations New York, the United Nations Development Fund for Women, UNIFEM and its Goodwill Ambassador Nicole Kidman as well as a large number of partners launched an internet campaign on November 26th on ending violence against women.

The Say no to Violence against Women campaign invites people all over the world to add their names to a virtual book on a website specifically created for this purpose.

Violence against women is an appalling human rights violation and must be stopped.

The idea of this is to send a stark and compelling voice or message to the decision makers of this world to place ending violence against women on the global agenda.

I hope this may clarify any of your questions but if you need anything else just please follow the link and you will get all the info you need.

The more people put their names to this virtual book the more perhaps global leaders will look at this very seriously and actually do something about it.

I have other information about some other things if you are interested in getting more involved in campaigning against violence against women and children please let me know.

Thank you all for taking the time to read this topic.

You obviously have no idea what you are talking about.
It's not about a man being "able-bodied" - anymore than an "able-bodied" woman who stays in an abusive relationship not 'deserving' your sympathy.
It's more to do with mental stuff, which I wont go into here.
Abuse comes in many forms, not just physical.
And yes men can be victims too.
