Rotarians and Community leaders urged to support
White Ribbon Day
to end men’s violence before it begins
We are all being urged to show support in the fight to stop violence against women by hosting an event, or making a donation, on White Ribbon Day, Friday November 18. We know that 1 in 6 women have experienced some form of intimate partner violence and 1 women every 9 days is murdered at the hands of a current or former male partner.
With the theme ‘Let’s be the change’, White Ribbon Australia is asking Australians to come together and start a conversation about practical solutions to end men’s violence against women and children in our communities and to act to stop more violence from occurring.
“Let’s Be the Change and do what we can to contribute to a nation free of all forms of gendered violence, harassment, abuse and disrespect,” White Ribbon Australia National Director Allan Ball said.
“To get involved, we’re asking businesses, service organisations, sports clubs, schools and community groups to host an event to start a collective call to action, which can begin by wearing a ribbon and prompting conversations on the issue.
People can find more information and register their event at the website link here. They can also upskill about violence prevention at the Digital Barber Shop here.
Separately, businesses can seek out the Workplace Accreditation Program, which engages a whole of organisation commitment to eliminating men's violence against women.
“Ending men’s violence against women can sometimes feel like an impossible goal,” Mr Ball said. “But we can do it together, community by community, workplace by workplace.”
The 2022 Give a Feed festive season campaign is now underway. This is a key Rotary service initiative that all WA Rotarians can actively promote with passion and vigour.
It's a great way to advocate corporate gifting right across the professional and business community, with family, friends, colleagues, staff, customers and suppliers etc. 
Rotary International is committed to diversity and inclusion.
As part of our engagement with the Western Australian community, we are encouraging all Rotaractors and Rotarians to participate in the Perth Pride March on Saturday 26 November 2022 to show our support for the LGBTIQ+ community and demonstrate that Rotary is a diverse and inclusive organisation.
The Pride Parade March returns to James St Northbridge and will be much more interactive and a lot easier to manage the logistics for all.
With the change The Pride Parade is anticipating an significant increase to audience from last year and will also be live streamed to various venues around Perth and Online.  The organisers are expecting over 5,500 participants Marching.

Our guest speaker; Rabia Siddique (represented by ICMI Speakers & Entertainers), is an international humanitarian lawyer, retired British Army senior officer, former war crimes and terrorism prosecutor and hostage survivor. She has undertaken humanitarian aid work in Asia, South America, Europe and the Middle East, for which she was decorated by the late Queen Elizabeth II. Rabia's best-selling memoir “Equal Justice: My Journey as a Woman, a Soldier and a Muslim”, was published by Pan MacMillan in 2013 and work is currently underway to adapt this to a movie. 
She is currently writing her second book; “A Beautiful Revolution”, about the power we all have to 'be the change' in our lives and in the world around us. Rabia Siddique is now a multi award winning storyteller, inspirational speaker, leadership consultant, media commentator and human rights advocate. Peace, equity and the sustainability of our planet is what drives her.  But Rabia's biggest challenge and joy is being a mother to her young triplet sons!
