White Ribbon is Australia’s only national, male led Campaign to end men’s violence against women.
All women live in safety free from all forms of men's violence.
Making women's safety a man's issue too.
Globally, White Ribbon is the world’s largest male-led movement to end men’s violence against women. Originating in Canada in 1991, White Ribbon is now active in more than 60 countries. In 2003, White Ribbon was brought to Australia through UNIFEM (now UN Women).
White Ribbon Australia observes the International Day of the Elimination of Violence against Women, also known as White Ribbon Day, annually on November 25. White Ribbon Day signals the start of the 16 Days of Activism to Stop Violence against Women, which ends on Human Rights Day (December 10).
However the campaign runs all year and is evident across the community through, for example, advertising and marketing campaigns such as Uncover Secrets, social media, community events and White Ribbon Night in July.
