White Ribbon Australia
Making women's safety a man's issue too.
The campaign works through primary prevention initiatives involving awareness raising and education, and programs with youth, schools, workplaces and across the broader community.
Globally, White Ribbon is the world’s largest male-led movement to end men’s violence against women. Originating in Canada in 1991, White Ribbon is now active in more than 60 countries.
White Ribbon began in Australia in 2003 as part of UNIFEM (now UN Women), formally becoming a Foundation in 2007.
White Ribbon Australia observes the International Day of the Elimination of Violence against Women, also known as White Ribbon Day, annually on November 25. White Ribbon Day signals the start of the 16 Days of Activism to Stop Violence against Women, which ends on Human Rights Day (December 10).
Queens Without Scars
Anti-VAW Campaign - No more Scars!
A campaign to raise awareness about violence against women and to empower women and girls across the globe.
It is a woman's right to be treated as the queen she is. A Queen without scars.
Make up was never designed to cover up the marks caused by violence, it wasn't meant to hide the pain or cover up fear. Makeup was designed to exalt the beauty in a woman . Nothing more.
While some of us do have scars we need to unite to fight to end the psychological and physical abuse that creates those scars.
Enough is enough.
Together we must take the first step, love ourselves and fight for our own freedom.
