St Oliver’s White Rib­bon

Drogheda Independent - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

MEM­BERS of the White Rib­bon com­mit­tee from St Oliver’s CC were hon­oured to be in­vited to the Men’s De­vel­op­ment Net­work in con­junc­tion with White Rib­bon Ire­land’s sem­i­nar on Gen­der Equal­ity in Dr Steevens’s hos­pi­tal on Novem­ber 19th.

The stu­dents were per­son­ally ad­dressed by Min­is­ter for Health, Si­mon Har­ris who told them that they were fu­ture lead­ers of our coun­try and to take up the man­tle in re­la­tion to Gen­der Equal­ity.

St Oliver’s were awarded White Rib­bon sta­tus two years ago prompted by the un­timely rape and mur­der of for­mer pupil Jill Meagher. They are ac­tively en­gaged in rais­ing aware­ness on end­ing men’s vi­o­lence against women and pro­mot­ing Gen­der Equal­ity.

St Oliver’s are ex­tremely grate­ful for the on­go­ing sup­port from Sorop­ti­mists, Drogheda and look for­ward to co-host­ing a work­shop fa­cil­i­tated by the Rape Cri­sis Cen­tre on the very im­por­tant is­sue of con­sent.
