White Ribbon campaign poster


Sir, – I note with alarm the White Ribbon campaign poster in Dublin containing the statement “helping end men’s violence against women”.

As written, it’s a ghastly unqualified indictment and collective libel.

I’ve been mistreated by some women in my life, yet I don’t apportion blame to the entire gender for the actions of a few. An anti-male blanket condemnation approach that assumes guilt, based on gender alone, is both ludicrous and offensive in equal measure. – Yours, etc, NIGEL RYAN, Donabate, Co Dublin.
