White Ribbon withdraws Luke Foley’s Ambassador status

White Ribbon Australia has zero tolerance for disrespect, abuse and violence of any kind towards women.

White Ribbon acknowledges Ashleigh’s courage in making a public statement about an incident that women should never experience.

We will never excuse or defend violence towards women of any kind. No matter who you are, what part of the community or organisation you are from – including if that person is an ambassador or connected to our own organisation – wherever disrespect and abuse against women occurs then the perpetrators must always be held to account.

White Ribbon has stood Mr Foley down from the White Ribbon Ambassador program, pending the investigation. All White Ribbon Ambassadors must pass a rigorous training program and abide at all times to the tenets of the Ambassador program. If at any time this is breached, then this respected status will be withdrawn.

White Ribbon calls for this matter to be discussed respectfully and in a way which supports women who display courage in speaking out against any abuse.
