Equity Trade Union

If we want to see change, we need to mobilise large numbers. We need to reach music venues, sports clubs, universities. Celebrities speaking out is great, but we want police officers, bus drivers, the whole community to embrace our values.
— Chris Green OBE (President and Founder, White Ribbon UK)

Male violence towards women is shockingly prevalent, and we can only change society by promoting a message of respect and tolerance, and leading by example.

All organisations, large and small, can achieve so much more than individuals can alone.

White Ribbon provides a comprehensive action plan for organisations to effectively marshal their resources and personnel to challenge male violence against women and make a genuine difference.

The action plan is concise and wide-ranging and offers achievable goals for organisations to reach in order to bring about genuine change. Once an organisation can demonstrate a commitment to this plan, it becomes eligible for the White Ribbon Award.


What is 'White Ribbon Status'?
