White Ribbon Day

22 November, 2019

Today marks White Ribbon Day in Australia, while internationally the UN Day is November 25.

From a tragic event in Montreal Canada in 1989 where a university student killed 14 fellow female students, the White Ribbon movement  is the world’s largest movement that aims to engage men and boys in working to end male violence against women and girls.

Women make up a large portion of the healthcare workforce across Australasia and about one third of our College members are women. This is a widespread issue which impacts our colleagues, workplaces and health services.

RACMA encourages all College members to lead by example and positively impact the current culture by being vigilant of any poor behaviour towards women in our workplaces and communities.

Never miss a RACMA moment
