White Ribbon UK's mission is to end male violence against women, once and for all.
They work with men and boys to challenge those male cultures that lead to harassment, abuse and violence. Their volunteer ambassadors engage with other men and boys to call out such behaviour among their peers and promote a culture of equality and respect.
White Ribbon UK call on all men to take a stand against sexism and gender-based violence in all forms.

March4Women was a family focused uplifting afternoon of speeches, entertainment, solidarity and action and also included speeches from singer Annie Lennox, writer and women's rights activist Helen Pankhurst and gender equality champions who have challenged the law to change the world: lawyer and women's rights activist, Shola Mos-Shogbamimu; FGM campaigner, Leyla Hussein, Gina Martin, the activist who made upskirting illegal; and Lady Brenda Hale, the first woman President of the UK Supreme Court.
Musical performances came from Beverley Knight, Bond Quartet, Urban Voices Collective and David Arnold.
March4Women celebrated the progress made towards gender equality and takes forward the global fight for gender equality by asking participants to join in calling for a worldwide treaty to protect women everywhere from violence and harassment in the workplace.
