REAL MEN DON'T HURT!

White Ribbon Campaign in Singapore    

2006, WRC Singapore is into the fourth year and currently run by the Male Chapter of AWARE. Our aims are to encourage reflection and discussion on issues that would lead to personal and collective actions among men.
We encourage men to do educational work in schools, workplaces and communities, to support local women's groups, to raise money for the international educational efforts of the WRC.
This year, our theme is “Real Men Don’t Hurt!” and we hope to convey the message that men need not resort to violence to gain control. We are also currently looking for men to join in and make a difference!

In 2005, the campaign was led by the Male Chapter of AWARE with the focus on Family Violence.
With the theme in 2005 being Family Violence, it was apt that the event was held in the heartlands at the Toa Payoh Bus Interchange. A mini exhibition was also put up by Holy Innocents' High School, and students from Serangoon Garden Secondary School started on their graffiti art piece on "children as silent witnesses".

In 2004, AWARE took over the challenge of the WRC, with the focus on Sexual Violence. Projects and Campaign in the year 2004 covered a broad range of topics and issues.

The first White Ribbon Campaign was organised in 2003 by The Working Committee 2 (TWC2) whose focus then was on violence against foreign domestic workers with the ribbon-making done by our men in prison.

How do we accomplish these objectives?

AWARE through the WRC aims to encourage reflection & discussion on issues which would lead to personal and collective actions among men.
We encourage men to do educational work in schools, workplaces and communities, to support local women's groups, to raise money for the international educational efforts of the WRC.
