“If it were between countries, we’d call it a war. If it were a disease, we would call it an epidemic. If it were an oil spill, we’d call it a disaster but it is happening to women and it is just an everyday affair. It is sexual harassment at work and sexual abuse of the young. It is the beating or the blow that millions of women suffer each and every day. It is rape at home or on a date. It is murder”.
Michael Kaufman, co-founder of the Canadian White Ribbon Campaign.
