The White Ribbon Campaign
Men working to end men's violence against women
The white ribbon campaign was founded in 1991 with a handful of men in Canada. It now spans world wide.
The WRC is the largest effort in the world of men working to end men's violence against women. The goal of the WRC is too have men wear white ribbons and pledge to never commit, condone, nor remain silent about the violence.
Men are encouraged to wear the ribbon between Nov 25th (International Day for Eradication of Violence Against Women) and Dec 6th (Canada's National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women)
The WRC is also deeply concerned about violence against children, which is committed by both women and men (although men commit most acts of sexual violence against children.) They are concerned about the many forms of men's violence against other men, whether it's in a bar, on a playground, or in a sports arena, and whether it's because of someone's skin colour, sexual orientation, culture, or simply because they looked the wrong way. And are concerned by any acts of violence by women against men, although these are comparatively rare.
Who can be a member of the WRC? Participation in White Ribbon committees is open to any man who is opposed to violence against women, who is committed to equality between women and men, and who is committed to examining and challenging violence in his own life. Men who engage in violence against women are not welcome. We warmly welcome men from all walks of life, religions, and political affiliations regardless of age, sexual orientation, race, ethnic group, or physical ability
