White Ribbon does an amazing job in spreading the word about the prevention of men’s violence towards women.
In 2016, White Ribbon launched The South Australia 1,000 Men Campaign, an initiative dedicated to reaching out to men who are new to the White Ribbon cause, and encouraging them to join in the plight to keep women safe from men’s violence.
In order to celebrate the progress the campaign has had so far, and invite even more men to get involved, White Ribbon are hosting the 1,000 Men South Australia Event this July 27th.
The fully catered evening will be compered by Chanel Nine’s Will McDonald and hosted by Australia White Ribbon Committee Chair and South Australia Commissioner of Police, Grant Stevens.
Engaging men to make women’s safety a man’s issue too
To stop domestic violence, Australia needs men to stand up, speak out and act.
White Ribbon Australia engages men to highlight the role they can play alongside women to stop violence against women, based on the understanding that most men are not violent.
Only some men use violence. Most men share the belief that violence against women is never acceptable.
Men speaking to other men about violence against women is a powerful catalyst for change
Through education, awareness raising, creative campaigns, preventative programs and partnerships, White Ribbon Australia provides the tools for men to stop violence against women in their community and beyond.
Underpinning our work is the positive engagement of men. White Ribbon Australia provides a safe and inclusive platform for men to discuss a complex and sensitive issue.
Our strategies are based on evidence
White Ribbon Australia’s male engagement strategy is evidence based and backed by research and evaluation. It is specifically tailored to provide clear and powerful messaging to men across Australia to inspire change and action.
Violence in our community
White Ribbon Australia acknowledges that violence can be perpetrated and experienced by both men and women. White Ribbon focuses on one specific type of violence – that of men’s violence against women. For more information see our page on violence against men and other forms of violence.
