Adelaide’s White Ribbon Breakfast goes ahead as online event

This year’s Adelaide White Ribbon Breakfast will go ahead as a virtual event, in support of violence against women

This years Adelaide White Ribbon Breakfast will go ahead as an online event on Friday 19th November, raising awareness of the impact of violence against women. This year, it’ll coincide with international Men’s Day, celebrating “Men Making Change”, a pairing of events that seems fitting to the day.

With the uncertainty of the pandemic, organisers will go ahead with this years breakfast as a virtual online event, allowing regional supporters to join in the cause. Australians from all over the country are invited to participate in what will be the 13th Annual White Ribbon Breakfast.

The below panel of three diverse and impressive speakers will join the mornings event, offering varying perspectives of men’s behavior and the programs that address men’s violence against women. The issue is one of an ongoing epidemic in Australia and, sadly, the COVID pandemic has made the situation worse, with lockdowns and social distancing having not only created a spike in violence, but also reducing the ability of victims to seek help.

The theme for this years White Ribbon Day is ‘How can Men Make Change? Learn, Give, Take Action’. With a need to change the attitudes and social norms that excuse or condone disrespect, sexual harassment and abuse, this event provides the awareness needed to get the wheels in action. One in three Australian women will experience violence in an intimate relationship. The issue at hand is deeply personal, and it’s happening to people we know and care about, so make sure to save the date for this important event.

The Adelaide White Ribbon Breakfast (virtual event) is on Friday 19th November, 7.30am-9.30am
