White Ribbon Day

25 November 2012

White Ribbon offers men the opportunity to be part of the solution to end violence against women. Violence is endemic within New Zealand. One in three women are victims of violence from a partner, while on average fourteen women are killed each year by a member of their own family.

White Ribbon is a campaign led by men who condemn violence against women and take action. We are part of a global campaign committed to ending violence against women. You can help effect change by supporting White Ribbon. Wearing a white ribbon is a personal pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women. In 2012 we will continue to showcase men who do not use violence in their lives and begin to explain how violence is not just physical in nature.
