White Ribbon is the world’s largest movement of men and boys working to end violence against women and girls, promote gender equity, healthy relationships and a new vision of masculinity. Since its inception in Toronto in 1991, The White Ribbon Campaign has spread to over 60 countries around the world. White Ribbon asks men to wear white ribbons as a sign of their pledge to never commit, condone, or remain silent about violence against women and girls

 

Domestic violence statistics show that 70% of incidents result in injury. In 2018 fifteen women in Massachusetts were killed by their partner.  But what does wearing a white ribbon really mean?  It says loud and clear that you will never condone, take part in or remain silent about domestic abuse against women.

 

The effects of domestic violence affects everyone.  If you think about how many people are touched by one person – whether it’s at work, a relative or someone else you know, it’s an issue that ends up affecting our entire community.
