White Ribbon - Ending Violence Against Women

White Ribbon - Ending Violence Against Women

When is White Ribbon?

The White Ribbon Campaign runs from the 25th November until the 10th December.

What is White Ribbon?

The White Ribbon campaign is an international movement with an aim to help stop violence against women by encouraging men to pledge their support. The pledge is a public commitment to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women. White Ribbon encourages men to promote a change of attitude, using their voice to make a stand against this abuse and raise awareness.

What can I do to get involved?

Individuals can also pledge their support for the campaign by completing the online pledge on www.whiteribboncampaign.co.uk or text wrc to 78866. Supporting the campaign also involves wearing a white ribbon - as a personal pledge never to commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women.

Within Lancashire there are a number of activities taking place in support of the White Ribbon Campaign. To find out more information, please contact saferlancashire@lancashire.gov.uk with any questions or comments.
