A White Ribbon Flag is flying above County Hall for a fortnight.Advertisement
It’s part of a two-week campaign to end all forms of male violence against women and girls.
Lancashire County Council has flown the flag from County Hall in Preston since Saturday (25 November) as part of International White Ribbon Day.
Large white ribbons and banners will be displayed at some county council-run buildings until Monday 10 December.
Cabinet member for community and cultural services county councillor Peter Buckley said: “Violence against women can come in all forms whether it’s domestic abuse or attacks on the street.
“Displaying the white ribbon is a clear sign that we won’t stand for it. We’re pleased to support the campaign and hope the white ribbons at county council buildings and libraries will help spread the important message.
“We want people across Lancashire to join in with this campaign and help to transform the lives of women and girls affected by violence.”
