EuroWRC is a resource centre and a European network of institutional actors, 
NGOs and individuals. 
It is a project whose goal is to mobilise and educate men for the purpose 
of adopting concrete measures to eliminate violence against women. 
It is also an inventory of research on male issues around violence against women, 
a state of mind directed towards a culture of peace and a non-violent society.

"Violence against women is perhaps 
the most shameful human rights violation. 
It knows no boundaries of geography, 
culture or wealth. 
As long as it continues, we cannot claim to be making real progress towards equality, development, and peace.

Kofi Annan,   United Nations Secretary-General

The individual responsability 
of men,  never to :

... commit violence
... condone violence
... remain silent about violence 
    against women

What can I do? Tips proposed by WRC Canada :
You can volunteer for any of the ongoing White Ribbon activities which include:

  • Mens' Discussion & Support Groups
  • Speakers' Bureau Presentations - making community educational presentations at schools, service groups, trade unons, and religious institutions.
  • Public Demonstrations
  • Organizing the Annual Remembrance which helps our communities to remember those who died as a result of a man's violence (December 6)
  • Fundraising efforts to support the work of White Ribbon Network
  • Promote national projects like a 24-Hour Men's Hotline to help counsel and refer violent-prone men to resources for healing themselves.
