Today is White Ribbon Day. Discover the many ways you can support this vital cause.

Today is White Ribbon Day, an important day to remind us of the impact and devastation that gendered violence has. It’s an issue that is still heavily upon us. Action needs to be taken and the White Ribbon is an organisation that is leading the pathway for change. 


The White Ribbon team are urging Australians to come together, host an event and start a conversation about practical solutions to end violence against women and children in our communities.


The latest statistics show some alarming facts about abuse and violence in our society with one in five women reporting experiencing emotional abuse by a previous partner and that nine out of ten women who experienced physical assault by a male were assaulted by someone they knew.


Let’s be the change. Start with your community and host a fundraising event to support this important cause. Let’s do what we can to contribute to a nation free of all forms of gendered violence, harassment, and disrespect.
