White Ribbon UK was founded in 2007.


Our Mission

To end male violence against women, once and for all. 

We work with men and boys to challenge those male cultures that lead to harassment, abuse and violence.  Our volunteer ambassadors engage with other men and boys to call out such behaviour among their peers and promote a culture of equality and respect. 

We call on all men to take a stand against sexism and gender-based violence in all forms.

Lead by example, take the White Ribbon pledge. Sign up to be one of our White Ribbon Ambassadors and get our message everywhere it needs to be heard. 

We need to reach out to men and lead by example; male violence against women must stop. Another world is possible - one of equality, respect and kindness.
— Chris Green OBE, Founder of White Ribbon UK
