'I will stand up, speak out and act to prevent men's violence against women'.

What is White Ribbon?

The White Ribbon campaign is the largest global male-led movement to stop men's violence against women. White Ribbon is an organisation that works to prevent violence against women by changing attitudes and behaviour.

To promote White Ribbon Day, which is held annually on November 25, the White Ribbon Team will have a stall and photo booth at Ocean Street, Maroochydore from 7.30pm Friday, November 24 and near the Loo with a View, Mooloolaba from 2.30pm on Saturday, November 25.

What you can do to stop this violence?

  • Take the oath online here.
  • Reflect on your attitudes and behaviours towards women.
  • Challenge sexist attitudes and behaviours.
  • Break the silence by talking to your mates and being heard on social media.
  • Encourage mates using violence in their relationships to get professional help.
  • Listen to friends who are experiencing violence and encourage them to seek help.
  • Volunteer or host a fundraising event.
  • Make a donation to sustain White Ribbon's work.
  • Support White Ribbon Day on November 25, the UN International Day for the elimination of violence against women, by wearing a white ribbon or wristband.
  • Call the police on Triple Zero (000) if you see or hear someone being violent. Never put yourself in danger or challenge the violence with violence.
