Prevent men’s violence against women

Violence against men

Violence against men and other forms of violence

White Ribbon Australia acknowledges that men’s violence against women is not the only form of violence that exists. Violence can be experienced by anybody; women, men, children and members of the LGBTQIA+ community. All forms of violence are unacceptable.

Different kinds of violence have different causes and effects. Violence prevention campaigns need a central focus to be successful in their mission. White Ribbon Australia choose to work towards the elimination of gender-based violence towards women. Read more about our history and why we work to prevent men’s violence against women.

White Ribbon Australia engages men to highlight the positive role they play in stopping men’s violence against women, including domestic and family violence.

Did you know?

Sadly, both women and men are more likely to experience violence at the hands of men. Around 95% of all victims of violence, whether women or men, experience violence from a male perpetrator.

This is why we engage men to be positive role models who show respect to women, and other men, in their lives.

Working together to end violence

There are many organisations working to stop other forms of violence, including violence against men, through evidence-based action and best practice. Part of our community-based model, White Ribbon Australia actively promotes and supports external initiatives that support the elimination of all forms of violence.

Information on these organisations can be found on our support services page.

By working together, we will see the elimination of all forms of violence in the future.
