Members of our Steering Group share why it's important to them to have signed up as an ambassador/champion:
It is key that we all take responsibility to end all forms of men’s violence against women and girls. Becoming a White Ribbon ambassador or champion is one way to show allyship and commit to the White Ribbon Promise.
We all have a responsibility to end all forms of men’s violence against women and girls. Signing up as a White Ribbon ambassador or champion is a way to take personal action, holding yourself and others accountable to the White Ribbon Promise and continuing to raise awareness to actively create change.
I am honoured to be a white ribbon ambassador; white ribbon is doing such important work trying to end men's violence against women and girls. We all have to be part of the solution, becoming a white ribbon ambassador means that you can be part of the solution too.
Being a White Ribbon champion, to me, means that I am supporting a movement which challenges men to reflect on their behaviours and attitudes, and flips the narrative from focusing on the steps that women ‘should’ take to stay safe, to the steps that men should take to prevent women being or feeling unsafe.
Being a White Ribbon Champion gives me the confidence and support to stand up against violence towards women and girls.
As a woman and a healthcare professional it is vital that we use our voice and our roles to engage with boys, men and our local communities to provide education about ending violence against women and girls. As a White Ribbon Champion I am proud of the work I do and would encourage more women to get involved in this life-changing work.
