Juniors hear anti-violence against women message

Juniors hear anti-violence against women message The White Ribbon anti violence against women message will be front and centre during the local junior rugby league season. No  

The White Ribbon anti violence against women message will be front and centre during the local junior rugby league season.

The City of Canterbury Bankstown, in partnership with the Canterbury-Bankstown Junior Rugby League Association, has provided six marquees and five sets of goalpost pads, which will be used at local matches.

The participating clubs are:

  • Bass Hill Broncos;
  • St Johns Eagles;
  • Revesby Rhinos;
  • Greenacre Tigers;
  • East Hills Bulldogs;
  • Chester Hill Hornets;
  • St George Dragons;
  • Bankstown Bulls; and
  • St Christopher’s Saints.

Junior League Competition Manager, Ben James, said it’s important to show children that, although the sport is tough on the field, there’s no reason to continue that behaviour off the field.

"This equipment is about starting those conversations and showing our kids that violence against women is just not acceptable – which brings us one step closer to initiating a generational change," Mr James said.

"White Ribbon and its message are both becoming a regular, and prominent, part of the rugby league landscape. I’m proud to say some of our junior clubs are even asking their male coaches and senior staff to take the White Ribbon Oath."

Mayor Khal Asfour said he’s proud to support initiatives, like this one, that are part of the global movement working towards ending violence against women.

"As a White Ribbon Day Ambassador, this is something very close to my heart," Mayor Asfour said.

"The number of domestic violence-related assaults in our City has declined by more than 10 per cent over the last three years. While that is a welcome improvement, we still have work to do."

Council was also recently involved in the launch of the Canterbury-Bankstown Says NO to Domestic Violence campaign and Canterbury-Bankstown Domestic Violence Service Directory, which is available online at It is also hosting a number of White Ribbon events throughout the year, including:

  • White Ribbon Night Youth Showcase on Thursday 26 July; and
  • Canterbury-Bankstown White Ribbon Tug O’ War Cup on 22 November.
