Mission Statement

To end violence against women by engaging men in the process of personal, relational, and social change.



Join The White Ribbon Campaign

Dear Supporters of The Center for Women and Families:

On average, more than three women die as a result of domestic violence every day (Bureau of Justice Statistics Crime Date Brief). Every 2 minutes, someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted (U.S. Department of Justice's National Crime Victimization Survey).

In response to this violence, The Center for Women and Families recognizes that men need to be part of the solution, and as a result, created its own White Ribbon Campaign Taskforce whose primary focus is engaging men to end violence against women.

Here are seven things identified by The International White Ribbon Campaign Committee to help end gender-based violence and promote gender equity, healthy relationships and positive ideals of masculinity.


1. Think about the kind of man you want to be. Be true to yourself.

2. Never use force, threats, or violence in your relationships with others.

3. Wear a white ribbon and speak out against violence against women.

4. Be a good role model and share with those around you the importance of respecting women and girls.

5. Learn about the impact of violence against women in our communities.

6. Challenge and speak out against hurtful language, sexist jokes, and bullying.

7. Accept your role as a guy in helping end violence against women. It affects everyone.

The History of White Ribbon

The White Ribbon Campaign is the largest effort in the world of men working to end violence against women. In 1991, a handful of men in Canada decided they had a responsibility to urge men to speak out about violence against women after The Montreal Massacre on December 6, 1989. On that day, 14 female students at the Ecole Polytechnique were killed.

Wearing a white ribbon is a personal pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women and girls. Now in over 55 countries, campaigns are led by both men and women.
