As part of their upcoming accreditation, Rugby League club Wigan Warriors have developed a campaign against male violence towards women, supported by White Ribbon UK. This is an important moment for sport as the team are a Professional Super League Club and have a large fan base.
The campaign they have developed, #RespectHer, is being run by the club’s Community Foundation, and takes huge steps within the sporting community to enable positive role-models to speak out for real change.
To launch the campaign, Wigan Warriors have produced a humbling video featuring the players:
