White Ribbon Day 25th November 2010

The White Ribbon Day Campaign is the only national violence prevention campaign.

It is unique in that it aims to raise awareness among Australian men and boys about the roles they can play to prevent violence against women.

The campaign calls for men across Australia to speak out and take an oath. An oath swearing never to commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women.

The campaign culminates on White Ribbon Day (25 November) each year, when men and women across Australia are called to wear a white ribbon or wristband as a visual symbol of their commitment and oath.

The White Ribbon Campaign in Australia is led by more than 1000 White Ribbon Ambassadors.

Women also support and expand the campaign through their networks, workplaces and community organisations, as White Ribbon Champions.

Buy a White Ribbon, support this day and make a difference!
