White Ribbon is Australia's only national, male-led Campaign to end men's violence against women. The campaign works through primary prevention initiatives involving awareness raising and education, as well as programs with youth, schools and workplaces – and across the broader community in general.
It's the responsibility of everyone in the community to ensure that violence and discrimination against women does not continue.
The violence perpetrated by men against women must stop and it is up to men themselves to stop it. The victims are not merely statistics; they are firstly individual human women, and also wives, sisters, mothers, daughters and friends. Good men cannot and will not sit on the sidelines while those they love are at risk of harm.The White Ribbon Campaign is about recognising the positive role that men can play in preventing violence against women. It fosters and encourages male leadership in the prevention of violence against women, based on the understanding that most men are not violent.
Each year to mark White Ribbon Day, Council, in partnership with a number of local working parties, holds various events aimed at raising awareness and changing attitudes towards violence against Women.
