From the NZFVC

The White Ribbon campaign this year has focused on asking men to stand up and take the pledge to stop men's violence against women.

The campaign is specifically encouraging men to pledge to take one of eight actions including:

"1. Listening and believing women
2. Reflecting on and changing their behaviour
3. Disrupting other men’s violence towards women
4. Treating women as equals
5. Choose how to be a man and how I will act
6. Talk to a young man about breaking out of the Man Box
7. Think about what they watch and the media they use
8. Talk with young men about respectful relationships and pornography"

The Campaign has produced a brief video calling on men to stand up, available in nine languages. They have also produced a series of five minute videos featuring White Ribbon Ambassadors talking about the eight actions to stop men's violence against women.
