This Saturday, 25th November, White Ribbon UK will mark White Ribbon Day – an internationally recognised day for men to show their year-long commitment to ending violence against women and girls. To mark the day, White Ribbon UK are teaming up with Sky Sports to raise awareness of male allyship in sport. Meanwhile, The Football Association of Wales is dedicating their Wales v. Türkiye football match to the charity, and councils across England and Wales are dedicating local Parkruns to White Ribbon UK.

Organisations across England and Wales are also showing their support with internal and external events, from Women in Rail to Oxford Brookes University. Train stations across England and Wales will hold fundraisers and have staff wearing White Ribbons, with support from Southeastern Railway and Network Rail who will include White Ribbon messaging on boards and ticket machines. At 16:00 on Saturday, 25th November, rail industry choirs will convene at London Bridge Station and move towards Charring Cross station as part of a fundraiser.

Anthea Sully, Chief Executive of White Ribbon UK, said: “The reality is violence experienced by women is mostly perpetrated by men. We know that it’s not all men, but all men can #ChangeTheStory and challenge harmful attitudes and behaviours that perpetuate sexism and misogyny.”

“Ending violence against women starts when we #ChangeTheStory and we need men leading this change with their family, friends and colleagues so that women may live their lives free from the fear of violence.”

Individuals and organisations can support White Ribbon Day by making the White Ribbon Promise on White Ribbon UK’s website, or by making donations to support the charity’s work. There is also a suite of resources available to download for free to raise awareness about men’s violence against women and girls, as well as a webinar series throughout the 16 Days of Activism.
