White Ribbon Days Nov. 25-Dec. 6

Violence against women takes many forms, but men can take the first step in acknowledging their part in ending violence against women, by wearing a white ribbon in November. The White Ribbon Campaign is entering its 11th year and continues its work of encouraging men to become involved in ending men's violence against women. WRC is the largest effort in the world of men working to end men's violence against women. "Wearing a white ribbon is a personal pledge never to commit, condone nor remain silent about violence against women," said WRC programme manager Jack Gagliardi. As in past years, white ribbons will be available for delegates attending CAUT Council Nov. 22-24, 2002.
