White Ribbon Australia Wanted To Sell 'Wife Beater' Singlets To Raise Funds



A senior representative from White Ribbon Australia wanted the domestic violence charity to sell "wife beater" singlets.


The staffer suggested selling the merchandise for $1,000 and including a QR code on the item that would direct users to a domestic violence awareness website.


The highly problematic idea was canned after being deemed "too radical."

Only last week White Ribbon Australia found themselves in yet another scandal.


The controversial charity came under fire for launching a social media campaign where people could donate funds to educate men about violence prevention.



The campaign's layout was eerily similar to charities that call on people to sponsor a child for just a dollar a day.


White Ribbon National Director Allan Ball said people "misunderstood" the message behind the social media campaign.


The campaign posts were later removed from social media.
