White Ribbon is a national social change organisation that works through a primary prevention approach based on the understanding that men are central to achieving the social change necessary to stop violence against women.
They engage men to stand up, speak out and act to influence the attitudes and behaviours of some men who commit violence against women, based on the understanding that most men are not violent.
Through education, awareness raising, creative campaigns, preventative programs and partnerships, White Ribbon provides the tools for men to stop violence against women in their community and beyond.
