ENQUIRIES ABOUT VIOLENCE AGAINST MEN

What about men who are experiencing violence at the hands of a woman?

White Ribbon believes that all forms of violence are abhorrent and acknowledge that men can be victims of violence as well as women. We deem all forms of violence as unacceptable.

As different kinds of violence have different causes and effects, violence prevention campaigns need a central focus to be successful in their mission. To learn more about our mission and history, please visit our About Us page.

Why do you focus on male violence against women and children?

White Ribbon acknowledges that violence is experienced by both men and women. However, the majority of domestic violence victims in Australia are women and children, and this is most likely to be perpetrated by a man.

As different kinds of violence have different causes and effects, violence prevention campaigns need a central focus to be successful in their mission. The White Ribbon movement was ignited as a response to the gendered violence of the Montreal Massacre in Canada.

Where to get help for males who experience violence?

Please contact Mensline Australia on 1300 789 978. They have trained staff providing specific support for men and boys 24 hours a day.
