Glasgow Kelvin College White Ribbon Status Campaign

Glasgow Kelvin College logoGlasgow Kelvin College was awarded White Ribbon Status in 2017, having worked to involve more men in addressing violence against women issues.  The Project involved raising awareness of what violence against women in all its forms, increasing gender equality and encouraging students and staff to sign the White Ribbon Scotland pledge, “I pledge never to commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women in all its forms”, and the need to change attitudes and behaviour if we hope to live in a society without violence against women.

With the strong support of the Glasgow Kelvin College Student’s Association, the original project’s success in achieving the Status Award was further acknowledged with an NUS Scotland Award, a National Green Gown Award, and commendation at the International Green Gown Awards in New York, which recognise exceptional sustainability initiatives by universities and colleges worldwide

 

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.
