Ahead of White Ribbon Day……

White Ribbon Day has been running for 17 years, and was founded by a group of men in Canada who felt that they had to raise awareness and work towards prevention of violence against women. The White Ribbon Campaign and Day spread through Canada, with hundreds of thousands of people joining the event in the first year, and wearing white ribbons to oppose violence against women
The event then spread beyond Canada, becoming international, and the UK branch of the White Ribbon Campaign was founded in 2004 and has continued to grow since then.
