White Ribbon New Zealand

White Ribbon is a global campaign led by men to end violence against women. White Ribbon Day, 25 November, is the international day when people wear a white ribbon to show that they do not condone violence towards women. White Ribbon celebrates the many men willing to show leadership and commitment to promoting safe, healthy relationships, and respectful attitudes and behaviours towards women.

 
VIOLENCE TOWARDS WOMEN IS UNACCEPTABLE
    • One in three women will experience partner violence at some point in their lives.
    • Over 3,500 convictions are recorded against men each year for assaults on women.
    • It is estimated that only 20 percent of abuse cases are reported.
    • This is totally unacceptable. White Ribbon has been created to help address this.
 
MEN ARE PART OF THE SOLUTION
    • This campaign is led by men for men.
    • We need to recognise there is a serious problem, accept that abuse against women is widespread, step up and take action.
    • This is about standing up for our female friends, our sisters, our mothers, our daughters. This isn’t their problem, it’s our problem.
 
YOU CAN HELP FIX THIS PROBLEM
  • Take The White Ribbon Pledge This is the main focus in 2018.
  • Check that your actions and those of your mates are OK – be man enough to make a call on inappropriate behaviour.
  • Make sure the women you know are OK – if not, start a conversation with them, with their partners, or with someone who can help.
  • Wear a white ribbon every day, join a White Ribbon project or activity – show your support.

    All shipping costs include the handling fee.

    Welcome

    We welcome your support in this year’s November Campaign as we continue to reduce men’s violence against women by promoting respectful relationships. This year we’re asking men to ‘stand up’ by taking the online pledge and committing to take one or more actions.
