To wear a white ribbon is to promise to never commit, excuse or remain silent about male violence against women.
White Ribbon UK is part of the global White Ribbon movement to end men’s violence against women and is the leading charity that is ending men’s violence against women by engaging with men and boys to make a stand against violence. White Ribbon works with individuals, organisations, and policy makers towards wholesale culture change to prevent violence before it starts.
Anthea Sully, Chief Executive of White Ribbon UK said
White Ribbon Accredited organisations are able to make a real difference towards ending violence against women by promoting a culture of respect and equality, among their staff and wider communities. By raising awareness among employees, people can learn how to become allies and call out violent and abuse behaviour when they see it, at work and in the wider community. We are delighted to welcome The Safety Centre Charity as one of our White Ribbon Accredited organisations and are looking forward to working with them towards ending violence against women once and for all.
