Prevent men’s violence against women

Hosting a White Ribbon Match

How to hold a White Ribbon Match

Sport is a critical channel for raising awareness of the importance of respectful relationships. Millions of men, women, boys and girls are involved at sport at some point in their lives, whether it be through codes, clubs, memberships, players or staff. It is important that the prevention of men’s violence against women is incorporated into training, games, events and communications to reach further into the community and highlight a sporting culture based on respect and inclusion.

Host a White Ribbon Match to show Australia how your club is committed to standing up, speaking out and acting to end violence against women.
