Supporting White Ribbon UK

White Ribbon UK is the leading charity ending male violence against women by engaging with men and boys to make a stand against violence.

Every year Broxtowe Women’s Project (BWP) supports the global White Ribbon movement in spreading their message to end male violence against women once and for all.

Their mission is for all men to fulfil the White Ribbon Promise to never commit, excuse or remain silent about male violence against women.

16 Days of Action

November 25th was the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, also known as White Ribbon Day. From that day, until Human Rights Day on 10th December, it was the 16 Days of Action.

During this time BWP worked with its partners and communicated with followers online to educate them and get them talking about violence against women.

Taking the conversation online

As part of educating our online followers and partners on the many elements of domestic abuse, we released a different blog for each of the 16 Days of Action.

Subjects covered abuse among the elderly, stalking and harassment, financial control and making work a safe space to be.

We posted plenty on White Ribbon too, which you can find on our pages at Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Linkedin #16daysofaction #whiteribbonday #makethepromise #signthepledge.

If you’re a business or work in a local community group and would like to take a stand with us now or in the future, please email for more information.
