What people are saying


Greater Manchester is committed to ending violence against women and girls, working together with public sector organisations, the third sector and our communities to challenge attitudes, change behaviour and encourage people to speak out.

By working with organisations such as yourselves, we can make real change and promote a culture of equality and respect in our communities, protecting women and girls from harassment, abuse and violence both now and in the future.

By Bev Hughes, Deputy Mayor of Greater Manchester

I believe that this is a time…not to put our heads in the sand but to lift our heads up. To begin to get informed. To begin to get passionate. And to begin to pick up the cry

By Rachel Hickson, HeartCry for Change

The vision of Press Red is one of transformed relationship between men and women. There is still a long road to travel not only in reducing the abuse inflicted on girls and women here in the UK and across the world, but also raising awareness of the issue and its prevalence. The work of Press Red is making a significant contribution to increased awareness and initiating change, not least in and through local churches, and is rooted in a commitment to living and sharing the love and hope of Jesus Christ.

By Rt Revd Rachel Treweek, Bishop of Gloucester
