CHALLENGE : In 1989, 14 female students were massacred at the University of Montreal. In response the White Ribbon Campaign was launched to work with men in ending violence against women. As one of the first ribbon campaigns they stood out. 20 years later, they became lost in a sea of other ribbon campaigns. No one knew or cared what they did. They needed a reintroduction to the world. SOLUTION : Rebrand and reposition White Ribbon by talking to men about what it really means to be a man. Honestly. In a way they could relate to.
