White Ribbon UK was founded in 2005.


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. 

White Ribbon Day

The United Nations General Assembly has designated November 25 as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

On this day until 10th December is the 16 Days Of Action. During this time we ask men to wear a white ribbon, and pledge never to commit, excuse or remain silent about male violence against women.

Of course this issue is present all year round, and we never stop campaigning. But it is important to mark this period with events, presentations and a special effort to speak to family, friends and co-workers about why men must take a stand against violence towards women. Join the campaign today and find out how you can do more in your community to mark White Ribbon Day and the 16 Days Of Action.

White Ribbon Day 2017

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
