Head to Maleny today for White Ribbon Day

THERE are two important days in my calendar - UN International Women's Day (March 8) and UN White Ribbon Day (November 25).

White Ribbon is Australia's Campaign Against Violence Against Women.

For readers visiting Maleny today, you will find our information tables outside Maleny Newsagency from 10am to 11.30am and outside the IGA from 11.30am to 2pm.

White ribbons ($2) will be available as well as fact sheets such as "What can men do?”

You might also like to visit Maleny's Library which earlier this year agreed to a suggestion by me that it maintain a website detailing the State Government's responses to the Quentin Bryce Special Taskforce on Domestic and Family Violence. The Response is to the 140 recommendations by the Taskforce.

For obvious reasons, many people may not be able to access this information from their home computer.

Important contacts: DV Connect 1800 811 811, Mensline 1800 600 636, Kidsline 1800 551 800, Maleny Men's Group 0414 315 399.
