Be­fore re­join­ing b+s a few weeks ago, I was news ed­i­tor of a par­ent­ing web­site. On at least a weekly ba­sis my team would re­port on yet an­other hor­rific do­mes­tic violence sit­u­a­tion in which a mother or child was hurt or killed by a part­ner or fam­ily mem­ber. Our read­ers would be shocked, our colum­nists would write pow­er­ful sto­ries call­ing for change and we’d be pre­pared for the next gut-wrench­ing story of a fam­ily and a com­mu­nity be­ing ripped apart by an­other do­mes­tic violence death. This Wed­nes­day is White Rib­bon Day, when the onus of this plague on our so­ci­ety is shoul­dered by men. Read our story on page 6 and let’s talk to the men in our lives.
