White Ribbon Day – 25 November

The White Ribbon Campaign works with men and boys to challenge those male cultures that lead to harassment, abuse and violence. The Council will be supporting White Ribbon Day on Sunday 25 November 2018, followed by the 16 days of action to the 10 December 2018. Please help mark this period with a special effort to speak to family, friends and co-workers about why men must take a stand against violence towards women. Further information is available here.

The United Nations General Assembly has designated November 25 as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

On this day until 10th December is the 16 Days Of Action. During this time we ask men to wear a white ribbon, and pledge never to commit, excuse or remain silent about male violence against women.

Of course this issue is present all year round, and we never stop campaigning. But it is important to mark this period with events, presentations and a special effort to speak to family, friends and co-workers about why men must take a stand against violence towards women. Join the campaign today and find out how you can do more in your community to mark White Ribbon Day and the 16 Days Of Action.
