If you have done some of the simple actions and you are interested in getting more involved, why not set up a local white ribbon group? This could take any form depending on your skills and experience and the local context.
You could start by trying to get a small group of interested men together to talk about the issue. You might want to begin by focusing on organising a local event together such as an activity involving men for the next 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence (25th November - 10th December).
Get in touch with us for help and suggestions on setting up a local group. We can put you in touch with other men who are already running local groups
Many thanks to Steve Shaw, a Prison Officer currently attached to Safer Leeds Domestic Violence Team, working with perpetrators of domestic violence. On the 26th May 2013 he will be taking part in the Edinburgh Marathon, running to stop violence against women and raising funds for the White Ribbon Campaign. He invites you all to support him in this extremely worthwhile campaign by visiting my just giving page @ http://www.justgiving.com/Stephen-Shaw1
On Wednesday 7th November, representatives of the White Ribbon Campaign, Chris Green and Joan Taylor, attended a parliamentary photo call in London. The event was attended by many Labour MPs including Harriet Harmon and Yvette Cooper.
Women aged 15-44 are more at risk from rape and domestic violence than from cancer, motor accidents, war and malaria, according to World Bank data.
