White Ribbon Day is a special day which is part of a campaign that is focused on encouraging men to pledge to end male violence against women. As part of this campaign students and staff pledged that they will not commit, condone or ignore violence against women or Domestic Abuse in any of its forms.
The White Ribbon Campaign is also deeply concerned about violence against children, which is committed by both women and men. They are concerned about the many forms of men’s violence against other men, whether it’s in a bar, on a playground, or in a sports arena, and whether it’s because of someone’s skin colour, sexual orientation, culture, or simply because they looked the wrong way. They are also concerned by the comparatively rare acts of violence by women against men.
