According to a 2005 survey, 1 in 5 young men believe that women often 'provoke violence'.

White Ribbon Schools Award scheme is being pursued by schools across the UK. Details of the scheme are downloadable from the Resources page. We also have materials to work with youth groups, college and University student groups.
White Ribbon Campaign UK has stands at both NASUWT and NUT national conferences in order to encourage schools to get invoilved in White Ribbon Campaigning. The President of the NASUWT is a white ribbon ambassador.
There are a range of activities, lesson plans and materials you can use with young people to introduce and explore the issue.
Go to the resources page for other materials you can use with young people.
