White Ribbon UK supports women's organisations and human rights organisations in their campaigns to end violence against women both in the UK and overseas. By sending an email or signing an online petition you can add your voice to a growing movement.
Some of the womens' organisations which we have worked with include Object, Tender, Million Women Rise, Reclaim the Night, Feminista, UNIFEM, Womens Aid and Womens Resource Centre.
Many White Ribbon Campaign fundraising events raise money both for WRC and for local womens organisations.
A list of activities which involve both awareness raising and fundraising are available on the Resources page.
