White Ribbon campaigns

More evidence is emerging of the poor use of income by various national White Ribbon campaigns. What else would we expect? These campaigns are driven by beliefs in the long-discredited male control theory of domestic violence (the Duluth model). An excellent new article by Jim Byset about White Ribbon Canada and White Ribbon Australia is here. We only know of one White Ribbon campaign worth supporting, WhiteRibbon.org. It’s run by Erin Pizzey.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    Though actually at least the website has the decency to link to Mankind on it’s page for male victims. 
    It doesn’t plaster itself with egregiously false figures. Though still relying on arrest and conviction figures which reflect what is  reported and taken forward rather than the more reliable British Crime Survey. 

    Of course the really bizarre bit for all these campaigns is that their success on signing up football clubs etc. Is a demonstration that men are perfectly ready not to “condone” violence against women, indeed it’s embedded deep in our  socialisation, possibly DNA. So it seems perverse to fund such campaigns with public money.
