“As a society we all have the opportunity to make change” – Ryan Midgley, White Ribbon Ambassador

Domestic violence has been exposed in Australia as one of the most serious and pervasive issues in recent time. In particular, women are experiencing violence at the hands of men, often by a past or present partner, at an unprecedented rated.

White Ribbon is a well-known organisation fighting against this increasingly common narrative. They are ensuring that men and women are being educated through the workplace, our schooling systems and throughout community organisations.

Ryan Midgley, White Ribbon Ambassador, spoke to Wavelength about his upcoming 900km bike ride across the Mawson Trail, aiming to raise money and awareness for individuals affected by domestic violence.
