Each year, White Ribbon Day is celebrated on the 25th of November. This day is set aside to advocate for the eradication of violence against women. Originally established by a feminist men’s group in the early 1990s, in recent decades the White Ribbon movement has played a significant role in defending women from violence, and educating both boys and girls about the impact of such violence and abuse. Officially supported through the establishment of the United Nations Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, this initiative is an important reminder for the need to speak out against the mistreatment of women, and advocate for the rights of all.
