White Ribbon condemns abuse of 17-year-old girl
“White Ribbon Australia has absolutely zero tolerance for violence of any kind – there is no defending violence against women and no excusing of abuse of any kind. We state in the clearest terms possible that it does not matter what part of the community or organisation you are from, perpetrators of abuse and violence against women must be held to account. There is no defending abuse in the workplace to employees and volunteers alike.
The White Ribbon social change movement is about men standing up, speaking out and taking responsibility to prevent and intervene safely in all incidences of disrespect and abuse of women. Workplaces are critical to changing a culture of disrespect and abuse including voluntary organisations. White Ribbon accredited workplaces promote respectful relationships, gender equality and demonstrate a culture of zero tolerance of disrespect, abuse and violence against women.”
Libby Davies, CEO White Ribbon Australia.
