Equal Parenting Week

Published: 3 August 2005

Children’s Rights Council ("CRC") invites people around the world to unite our voices in sending the message "The Best Parent Is Both Parents" around the globe.

Please visit the Equal Parents’ Week web page at http://members.tripod.com/epweek

Equal Parents’ Week sends the message that parental rights, responsibilities and joys must be shared equally by both parents. The purple ribbon is the symbol which sends this message. People are urged to send this message by wearing purple ribbons and tying them everywhere they can be seen. Equal Parents’ Week advocates the right of children to be raised and nurtured by both parents and the right of both parents to function equally as parents. We say these are fundamental civil and human rights.

Equal Parent’s Week is an international movement to raise public awareness and achieve legal reform to promote joint custody and shared parenting.
