#20MINUTESOFACTION4CHANGE

How do you take a horrific statement and turn it on its head to become a rallying cry for change?

One in five women will be sexually assaulted during their college and university years. When the Stanford rapist’s father (Dan Turner) used the deplorable euphemism “20 minutes of action” to describe the rape his son committed, White Ribbon wanted to find a way for dads to take action.

We turned one dad’s negative phrase into a movement all dads could get behind by creating #20MinutesofAction4Change. It became a rallying cry for dads across the globe to talk to their sons about consent, boundaries and respect for women. The initiative culminated on Nov 25th, the United Nations’ International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women with over 100 companies donating their social channels and ad space for 20 minutes.
