White Ribbon Campaign
The White Ribbon Campaign was started in 2007, and their aim is to end male violence against women. The campaign is run and supported by men and they want to engage men in calling out violent, bullying behaviour amongst their peers, and spreading a message of equality and respect. They recognise that there is inequality in society, but believe it is vital to encourage men to recognize and stand against sexism and gender based violence in all forms.
The White Ribbon Campaign encourages men to wear a white ribbon and pledge never to commit, excuse or remain silent about male violence against women.
Be a White Ribbon Ambassador and make a difference.
“It’s vital that we get men from all walks of life involved in spreading the White Ribbon message.
We need to end male violence against women, once and for all.
We’re playing our part to realise that vision, by engaging men in standing against bullying, violent behaviour perpetrated by men against women.
Agreeing with the principle is admirable, but not enough. We need men to become Ambassadors and take the message out there; to schools and colleges, workplaces and festivals; we need men to promote awareness of our principles, to recruit other men, to fund-raise, and generally help us change the world for the better.
If you’re a man that wants to help us make a difference, please visit the linked website and become an ambassador. Once you’ve completed the online training you’ll get a shiny Ambassador pack containing an enamel Ambassador badge and comprehensive guidance on how you can help.
