Some of Scotland's most prominent men have given their support to a campaign to end violence against women.
Novelist Christopher Brookmyre, First Minister Alex Salmond and Cardinal Keith O'Brien have added their signatures to a letter published in The Scotsman today, urging men to take more responsibility for reducing violence against women.
Tavish Scott, leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats, and Walter Smith, manager of Rangers Football Club, have also lent their names to the global campaign, organised by a charity called The White Ribbon Campaign.
The Scottish arm of the charity is today launching a new website and urging Scottish men to support the campaign.
