During 2021/22 Angus Violence Against Women Partnership (AVAWP) will be aiming to achieve White Ribbon status by urging local men to play a part in tackling violence against women by taking the White Ribbon Campaign pledge not to commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women in all its forms.
A programme of events will take place, including men training as “speakers” to go out into their communities, workplaces, and friendship groups to spread the messages from the White Ribbon campaign. Sessions will also be available for others to become “active bystanders” and learn about appropriate ways to respond when witnessing incidents involving gender based violence.

Angus Violence Against Women Partnership
Equally Safe is the joint strategy of the Scottish Government and COSLA for preventing and eradicating violence against women. The vision of Equally Safe is “A strong and flourishing Scotland where all individuals are equally safe and respected and where women and girls live free from all forms of violence and abuse – and the attitudes that help perpetuate it”.
Angus Violence Against Women Partnership (AVAWP) is the multi agency forum to deliver on Equally Safe: Scotland’s strategy for preventing and eradicating violence against women and girls at a local strategic level. No single partner alone has the resource, skill or reach to achieve the aims of Equally Safe and it is only through strong partnership working that this can be achieved.
The AVAWP Strategic Plan 2021-24 sets out to ensure “An effective strategy to engage with men and boys is in place”. Achieving White Ribbon status is part of the journey towards doing this.

Most men do not commit violence against women. But all men have a role in ending it. If we all start by making a pledge never to commit, condone or remain silent about men's violence against women in all its forms, that will make a huge difference.
