White Ribbon Campaign

The White Ribbon Campaign is a male led campaign to end men's violence against women.

In 1999, the United Nations General Assembly declared 25 November as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. The white ribbon is worn on the day to represent support for the elimination of violence against women.

Men can take a stand by swearing the White Ribbon Oath and saying no to violence against women.

White Ribbon Day is celebrated across Australia with official events, community events and fundraisers, as well as marches in capital cities.

There are many events happening in South Australia on or around White Ribbon Day. Many are listed on the White Ribbon website.

For more information about the White Ribbon campaign and White Ribbon Day visit the White Ribbon website at whiteribbon.org.au.
