Prevent men’s violence against women

Be informed this White Ribbon Night

Men's violence against women can be tricky to understand at times.

When you’re hosting an event, your guests could ask you about violence against women, what White Ribbon does, where their donations go, or they could even disclose violence to you.

It’s important to us that you have all the resources you need to be informed, and able to answer these questions.


Types of violence

Violence does not always look like a black eye, or a broken rib. There is no one way to experience violence – it could be physical, sexual, verbal, social, emotional, financial, and/or spiritual. It could look like stalking, sharing intimate pictures online without permission, intimidation, or a range of other things.
