You are helping to break the silence around violence against women
The White Ribbon Campaign
The White Ribbon Campaign is the first male-led campaign to end violence against women in the world. We encourage men to take a stand and say that violence, in any form, is never acceptable.
Wearing a white ribbon is a personal pledge that the wearer does not excuse violence against women, and is committed to supporting community action to stop violence by men against women.
Men who wear a white ribbon demonstrate their opposition to violence against women and their commitment to equality between women and men. Men of all ages, from all workplaces, of all political affiliations and of all racial, ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds, sexual orientation and physical ability are needed to help establish community leadership to stop violence against women.
Steve can be contacted on 0412334521 if you would like further information, or visit www.whiteribbon.org.au and swear the oath and find out how you can help.
This event is supported by Flowerdale Men’s Shed, King Parrot Creek Environment Group & Flowerdale Community House CoM’s.
