Leave The Ultimate Gift

With one in three women having experienced physical and/or sexual violence perpetrated by someone known to them in their lifetime, and at least one woman killed every week as a result of domestic violence,  this is a devastating issue destroying our families, health and community.

White Ribbon Australia seeks to end men’s violence against women. Preventing men’s violence against women means stopping the violence before it happens and White Ribbon Australia’s work is focused on primary prevention. Through our targeted education programs, awareness-raising and creative campaigns, collaborative partnerships and mobilising role models in the community with our male Ambassadors and female Advocates, we believe we can create a society in which no man commits, excuses or stays silent about violence against women.

If you share our vision, for a ‘a nation that respects women, in which every woman lives in safety, free from all forms of men’s abuse’ then please consider leaving a gift to White Ribbon Australia in your Will. A gift in your Will is a unique opportunity to make a difference that transcends your lifetime. A gift in your will is a gift to a future free from violence.
