Seminar: Men as Allies: A Case Study of White Ribbon Australia’s Ambassador Program

This research examines men’s role as allies to prevent men’s violence against women (MVAW) through a case study of White Ribbon Australia’s (WRA) Ambassador program. Specifically, this research explores why men become allies to prevent MVAW, what challenges they encounter, and how they overcome them. Through the combination of interviews and a survey, viewed through social movement and masculinity theory, a narrative of men’s development and involvements as allies will emerge. The practical knowledge gained from this research will contribute to increasing ally participation and efficacy within WRA as well as other antiviolence against women organisations, both nationally and internationally.
