Across Powys, people showed up to take part in walks in the county to show their support for ending men's violence against women and girls.

Held by Powys County Council on the 25th of November, four walks were organised across Brecon, Llandrindod Wells, Newtown and Welshpool.

Holding banners and wearing white ribbons, the aim of the walk was to encourage others to change the story of violence against women and girls.

Cllr Matthew Dorrance, Powys County Council's Deputy Leader and one of its White Ribbon Lead Ambassadors, hoped that the walks could help women and girls live free from the fear of violence. He said: "I would like to encourage men and boys in Powys to make the White Ribbon promise to never commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women and girls, which can be done online on the White Ribbon UK website:"

White Ribbon is a UK charity engaging men and boys to end violence against women and girls.

According to End Violence Against Women, nearly 1 in 4 girls in mixed-sex schools have had experiences of unwanted sexual touching in school, while the Government Equalities Office says 30% of women have experienced workplace harassment, with 81% reporting that they had been harassed by a man/men.
