White Ribbon Campaign

White RibbonOur Branch Secretary Christina Sanna and Reps John Yarker and Najeeb Nazir are out today wearing their White Ribbons!  Nottingham City UNISON are proud to support White Ribbon Day and an end to male violence against women.

The White Ribbon Campaign (WRC) is a global movement of men and boys working to end male violence against women and girls. It was formed by a group of pro-feminist men in London, Ontario in November 1991 as a response to the École Polytechnique massacre of female students by Marc Lépine in 1989. The campaign was intended to raise awareness about the prevalence of male violence against women, with the ribbon symbolizing "the idea of men giving up their arms." Active in over 60 countries, the movement seeks to promote healthy relationships, gender equity, and a compassionate vision of masculinity which ends violence against women whilst simultaneously encouraging men to have a discussion about masculinity itself.
