- White Ribbon Australia is a part of a global social
movement working to eliminate gendered violence. We strive for an
Australian society where all women and children are safe.
- The White Ribbon Australia movement works through a
primary prevention approach in communities, schools and workplaces across
the country. Through our programs and campaigns, we engage with men to
become active in the social change needed to stop men’s violence against
women and children.
- White Ribbon Australia operates in collaboration
with, and alongside, many other organisations working to end men’s
violence against women. Our focus is on mobilising men and boys and the
community in a social movement to take action to eliminate men's violence
and abuse against women.
- Men’s violence against women is a social issue. It’s
everybody’s issue to help end.
- In this new chapter of White Ribbon Australia, we’re
shifting from awareness-raising to advocacy and community-led violence
prevention action. We’re thinking about how our collective power in
solidarity with the broader movement to advance gender equality and
women’s safety can create cultural and systemic change, and we’re working
to invest the general public’s recognition of the white ribbon symbol with
deeper significance – a call to action that says it’s not enough to know
about it, it’s not enough to think it’s bad, it’s not enough to hope
someone does something about it – it will take all of us, all in to create
a future free from all forms of men’s violence and abuse.
- You might’ve seen that we’ve joined the campaign with
some women’s safety and women’s legal services across the country to
criminalise coercive control. Since joining the campaign and driving it in
some States, especially in Queensland, we’ve seen Bills presented to
Parliament, inquires and reviews announced and the Queensland Government
promise us the “best coercive control response in the world.”
- We’re also advocating for governments to fill the gaps
in men’s behaviour change programs from prevention through the perpetrator
interventions, both in terms of building the evidence base and addressing
- We’ve added our voice to the call for 10 days universal
paid family and domestic violence leave. We’ve called for the increased
rate of JobSeeker to be retained permanently recognising the way this
advances women’s financial security and safety.
- And in terms of community mobilisation we’ve initiated
community action groups recognising that the problem of men’s violence
against women isn’t unique to any community but the solutions are.
