WE INSIST WHITE RIBBON AUSTRALIA TAKE A REAL STAND AGAINST MALE-VIOLENCE-AGAINST-WOMEN:
- Listen to, and act on advice from female advocates for women.
- Acknowledge there is a toxic culture behind two women a week being murdered by male violence in this country.
- Take a pledge to challenge this culture and help change our current paradigm of masculinity, including personal actions and words.
- Implement a respect and responsibility policy for all ambassadors and partners, and reassess partnerships with organisations who do not comply.
- Include guidelines for men, on how to turn away from, stop the demand for, and stand up against this culture, extending these guidelines to all fundraising events.
- Circulate female survivor literature regularly among your pledges, supporters and social media followers.
- Publicly support women led campaigns and acknowledge our work and the language we use.
- Publicly support women's rights advocates when men use abusive language and threats of violence to silence us.
- Start naming the problem, male violence and male sexual entitlement, NOT intimate partner violence.
- Meet the standards set by White Ribbon in other countries by immediately implementing all of the above.
