White Ribbon is the world’s largest male-led movement to end men’s violence against women.
The White Ribbon Campaign is about recognising the positive role that men play in preventing violence against women. It fosters and encourages male leadership in the prevention of violence against women, based on the understanding that most men are not violent.
The White Ribbon Cup was established by the Inner West Domestic Violence Liaison Committee with West Harbour Rugby Union and Sydney University Football Club in 2011, and is played annually between West Harbour and Sydney Uni 1st Grade teams. It is a vehicle for players, coaches, managers and supporters to raise awareness of the White Ribbon campaign, and to also take the White Ribbon Oath, swearing never to commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women.
This is the 8th year West Harbour and Sydney Uni will play for the White Ribbon Cup. The match will be played at the SUFG (No.2 Oval), kicking off at 3.00pm on Saturday 18th May.
