White Ribbon Campaign

Men Working To End Men's Violence Against Women


The White Ribbon Campaign is “men working to end men’s violence against women.”  It was started in Canada in 1991  in response to the murders of a group of college women who where killed by a disgruntled male student.  The Campaign has since grown into a world-wide organization.


In a list of “Ten Simple Things You Can Do To Help Stop The Violence Against Women,” the White Ribbon Campaign includes:


*     Object to any sexually-demeaning pictures of women in the workplace.

*     Challenge jokes and sexist language that imply violence towards, or abuse of women.

*     Write to the media or to advertisers to object to demeaning images of women.
