Cardiff Male Choir were just one of many male groups in Cardiff asked to support the White Ribbon Day – 25th November. The choir were asked to sign a ‘Not In My Name’ poster, organised by members of the National Federation of Women’s Institutes.

NFWI-Wales and Joyce Watson AM hosted a cross-party stakeholder event at the Senedd on 19 November to mark White Ribbon Day and discuss the importance of engaging with boys and men to eliminate male violence against women.

Prior to the event, politicians and other supporters gathered on the steps of the Senedd holding Not in my Name posters signed by male groups and organisations.  Politicians also signed a giant white ribbon as a pledge of their support.
