DEFENCE personnel walked as
one around Lake Burley Griffin
in Canberra to raise awareness of
the White Ribbon campaign and to
encourage others to prevent violence
against women and girls.
More than 200 personnel par-
ticipated in the walk held on White
Ribbon Day – November 25.
Chief of Air Force Air-Mshl Leo
Davies led the event and told walkers
of the importance of raising awareness
of the White Ribbon movement.
“Our Defence values are not all
written exactly the same, but among
those values is respect and respect for
everyone,” Air-Mshl Davies said.
“We are here today to celebrate our
ability to demonstrate what our values
mean, by doing something other than
just thinking about it.”
Air-Mshl Davies said everyone had
the right to feel safe.
“One woman a week in Australia
dies needlessly due to domestic
violence. They die at the hands of
someone they know, are intimate with
or close to, and that person is a man,”
“I thought maybe that might be a
statistic that just can’t be true. Over
the last couple of years, being aware
of White Ribbon in preventing vio-
lence, I’ve met a number of people
who are doctors and nurses and they
tell me this statistic is absolutely true
“That is why we must stand up and
speak out. That’s why we are acting

Federation Guard, said he walked to

awareness to the cause and to show
the ADF is supporting it, too,” he said.

Ending the violence
ADF unites to raise awareness for White Ribbon campaign
Cpl Mark Doran
THE co-founder of White Ribbon
Michael Kaufman displayed his
passion and energy for equality as
he weaved research, humour and
stories for a presentation at ADFA
on November 23.
During his lecture he explained
why men resorted to violence and
what leaders could do to make a dif-
ference to the lives of others to create
an equitable and healthy workplace
free of violence.
He said research into human
culture found societies with more
violence were male-dominated
patriarchal-based societies, while
societies based on equality between
women and men had less.
“We still live in a world of ine-
quality in spite of incredible progress
from the impact of strong, power-
ful, courageous women who have
stepped forward,” he said.
“Women have struggled for
change and have had successes, but
we still have a way to go.”
Dr Kaufman praised the ADF and
said it was creating history.
“It is the first defence force in
the world that has gone through such
a systematic program to address
issues around violence, responses to
violence and how to create healthier
workplace gender relations,” he said.
“Other armed forces have done
bits and pieces, but when you think
about how far it has come, the ADF
is an inspiration to the rest of the

“I’ve observed the damage it creates
for families at close quarters,” she said.
“The ADF is an organisation like any
other and it’s good that our senior lead-
ership wants all of our men and women
to understand violence against women is
