White Ribbon Scotland is a campaign to involve men in tackling violence against women. It is a joint initiative by a coalition of organisations, individuals and groups of men around Scotland. View our supporters.
We are part of the international White Ribbon Campaign, which is the largest effort in the world of men working to end violence against women, with campaigns in over 55 countries. More about White Ribbon around the world.
The campaign in Scotland was launched in 2006 following a conference at which there was overwhelming support for men in Scotland joining women’s organisations in campaigning to end violence against women. Read more about the conference (downloads a .pdf).
What we do
White Ribbon Scotland contributes to ending violence against women by engaging men and boys in taking action on the issue. We do this by raising awareness, promoting discussion and providing information and resources to support personal and collective action among men.
We need you
1. To take action: White Ribbon Scotland is first and foremost a grass roots campaign, relying on the skills, experience and action of men in Scotland. We need you to work with others in your community to educate and inspire other men to campaign against violence against women. Make the pledge.
2. To support out work: Your donations, either as an individual or an organization, are crucial to our work to change attitudes in our society and to challenge gender inequality and violent models of masculinity.
