The Western Sydney Wanderers have confirmed that they will wear the white away kit in Saturday night’s clash against Brisbane Roar to raise awareness for White Ribbon.
White Ribbon is the largest global male-led movement to stop violence against women, engaging with men and boys to be the leaders in this social change.
The Wanderers invite and encourage Members and fans to wear white to the match and be part of the Wanderers annual White Out fixture.
Through wearing white, the same colour as the iconic ribbon, players, Members and fans will be raising awareness of all those women directly and indirectly affected by violence not only in the Western Sydney region but also throughout Australia.
There will also be volunteers stationed at the match day precinct selling merchandise with all funds going towards transforming attitudes and behaviours that result in violence being instigated towards women in schools, workplaces, and local communities.
With the White Ribbon foundation, the Wanderers hope that such initiative helps encourage women to be confident enough to share their story with the belief that they will be heard whilst encouraging men to pledge their allegiance towards the prevention of violence against Women.
