Scottish Men Against Violence

Brian Cox, Julia Stiles: Bourne SupremacySeveral Scottish celebrities are teaming up in support of 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence. The 16 days runs from November 25 through December 10, dates chosen to link International Day Against Violence to International Human Rights Day.

Taken from the 16 days materials: The terms “violence against women” and “gender-based violence” are used to refer to a range of abuses committed against women that stem from gender inequality and women’s subordinate status in society relative to men. Forms of gender-based violence include, but are not limited to: domestic violence, sexual abuse, rape, sexual harassment, trafficking in women, forced prostitution, and harmful traditional practices.

In Scotland, 20 high-profile males have joined together to speak in support of this campaign. The Bourne Supremacy’s Brian Cox said, “To live in the 21st Century and still be waging a war to eradicate violence against women is shameful. This is a fundamental human right, one that is denied to countless women and children across Scotland–and across the globe–every minute. It is imperative that we ensure that women have the support and the resources to escape their abuser. I applaud the White Ribbon campaign and am proud to be a part of it. I urge the men of Scotland to rally behind our sisters and offer support.”

Alan Cumming, whom I most remember from Circle of Friends and Romy & Michelle’s High School Reunion said: “The fists come up when the brain shuts down. Be a real man. Get smart. Spread the message and stop violence against women.”

No surprise here, you won’t find Scotland’s Sean Connery on the list. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Watch it.
