White Ribbon Day in 2023
Days to go:
White Ribbon Day is seeks to end male violence against women and girls. The campaign, symbolised by a white ribbon, promotes a culture of respect, gender equality, and healthy relationships. White Ribbon Day encourages men to take a stand against violent behaviour and provides support for educational initiatives aimed at reducing gender-based violence in the society.
Although the campaign is internationally recognised, White Ribbon Day finds unique relevancy in the United Kingdom. The campaign was first introduced in Canada in 1991 after the brutal killing of 14 women in a mass shooting at the École Polytechnique institute in Montreal. In the UK, domestic violence remains an ongoing concern that affects more than 1.9 million people annually, with women being disproportionately targeted. This campaign plays a significant role in raising awareness and fostering active engagement, particularly with men and boys, to tackle this widespread issue.
In the United Kingdom, White Ribbon Day is observed through various events, including walks, film screenings, and discussions that highlight the problem of violence against women. These events aim to inspire individuals and organisations to pledge their commitment to promoting respect and equality, as well as raising funds to support future educational and awareness initiatives. The official international date for White Ribbon Day is November 25th.
