White Ribbon to Raise Our Boys

October 20, 2017


White Ribbon wants your help to end men’s violence and sexual harassment against women.


White Ribbon Campaign Manager Rob McCann says the recent Weinstein allegations and subsequent ‘Me too’ Facebook status have demonstrated in a very public manner what family violence organisations have known for a long time.


Mr McCann says while one in three women experience violence in their lifetime, the number of women that experience issues such as sexual harassment is clearly far higher.


He says White Ribbon has events planned for Palmerston North, Levin, and the Kapiti Coast in November.


Mr McCann says the 2017 Campaign will be called ‘Raise our Boys,’ and will focus on preventing violence and harassment by encouraging dads to teach our boys about consent and being respectful.


He says White Ribbon is a small organisation and needs public help to get campaign information in front of as many men as possible. He says now more than ever, everyone can see just how immense this problem is.
