White Ribbon Day 2011

Every Six Seconds A Woman Cries

Every 6 seconds a woman in the UK is abused.

Every 3 days a women in UK is killed by a violent (ex) partner.

This year the Ipswich and District Soroptimists are proud to be part of ‘Every 6 Seconds

Back in the Summer of 2010 Anne and Pat (two of our very talented Soroptimists) started a creative writing group at Lighthouse Women’s Aid.  The aim was to provide women with a creative outlet for their experiences. The result was over 100 brave and thought-provoking poems. These have been edited down and now make up the wonderful book entitled ‘Every 6 Seconds’ which launch on International White Ribbon Day 2011.
