Attorney-General supports White Ribbon Day

Federal Attorney-General Robert McClelland spoke at White Ribbon Day at the Canberra headquarters of the Attorney-General's Department.

Behind him are photos of former Attorneys-General including Gough Whitlam, Lionel Murphy, Kep Enderby and Bob Ellicott.

What has amazed me with the the political ructions of the last week is the number of politicians who were wearing their white ribbons, saying that they were opposed to violence against women. In the midst of the first leadership spill to Malcolm Turnbull's position, brought on by Kevin Andrews, virtually every pollie seemed to be wearing their white ribbons.
