CANBERRA, Nov. 26 (Xinhua) -- Australia is to host the inaugural global conference of the White Ribbon Movement - a campaign led by men to stop violence against women, Prime Minister Julia Gillard said in a speech in Canberra on Monday.

According to her speech, Australian government would host the conference on the May 2013 in Sydney, which would bring together experts from academia, government and service providers.

"I hope that the lessons from this conference will be shared widely and help inform future White Ribbon initiatives," she said.

This campaign began in Toronto, Canada, after the massacre of 14 female university students two decades ago. It came to Australia in 2003 and more than 58,000 Australian men have since sworn an oath to reject violence in their own lives and speak up when they encounter it in the lives of others.
