White Ribbon Day

Default news image

White Ribbon is Australia’s only national, male led campaign to end men’s violence against women. White Ribbon Australia works to change attitudes and behaviours that lead to and perpetuate men’s violence against women by engaging and enabling boys and men to lead social change. The White Ribbon Campaign is about recognising the positive role that men play in preventing violence against women. It fosters and encourages male leadership in the prevention of violence against women, based on the understanding that most men aren't violent.

Violence against women has been seen as a 'women's issue' for far too long. Noting that over twelve months, on average, one women is killed every week in intimate partner violence, Sustineo believes that violence against women is unacceptable and that it is every man’s responsibility to prevent it. Sustineo is well recognised for its work in supporting governments with policy and implementation support and advice in efforts to reduce and eliminate violence against women.
