At Forward, we are bringing awareness to White Ribbon Day on Friday 18th November 2022. White Ribbon Day is a global social movement working to end men’s violence against women and promote gender equality in society.
Get the facts:
Around 95% of all victims of violence, whether women or men, experience violence from a male perpetrator.
On average, one woman a week is murdered by her current or former partner.*
We are raising awareness amongst our members, staff, and the wider community to help start the conversation and support the White Ribbon Day movement. Here are some great resources to help recognise and prevent gendered violence in the community, and we encourage you to read, share and action them.
Here are some resources to help prevent gendered violence against women:
