The White Ribbon Garden

19 November-10 December 2019

 

On Tuesday 19 November, North Sydney Mayor, Jilly Gibson, launched the White Ribbon Garden situated in front of North Sydney Council at 200 Miller Street, North Sydney.

The North Sydney Men's Shed built two lightweight white planter boxes in the shape of a ribbon, which Parks staff filled with white flowers.

 

The garden has been temporarily installed in recognition of the international campaign of 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence (25 November to 10 December).

In 1999, the UN declared 25 November as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, with a white ribbon as its iconic symbol.

Human Rights Day is observed on 10 December - the day the UN adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.

It is a reminder that violence against women and girls must stop.
