10 Things Men Can Do to Prevent & End Violence Against Women & Girls:


LEAD
Lead by Example. Be a role model for other men and boys in your community. Teach your children to be respectful and never abusive toward others. Serve as a good father and equal partner in your family.
SPEAK OUT
Speak out against gender discrimination and violence – and explain why it is offensive to you.
CHALLENGE
Challenge other men when they say or do disrespectful things toward women and girls or make comments that tease or harass men and boys for not being “manly” enough. Let people know that you find these comments offensive and limiting.
TALK
Talk with men and boys in your life about healthy manhood and the importance of respecting women and girls.
REMEMBER

Remember that silence is affirming. When we choose not to speak out against domestic and sexual violence, we are supporting it.

EDUCATE

Educate and re-educate your sons, daughters and other young people that you influence about respectful behaviors and healthy relationships.

EXPRESS

Express your broad range of emotions – including fear, sadness and hurt – and support other men and boys in expressing their emotions in a safe way.

GIVE

Give equal affection to your sons and your daughters. Demonstrate to them that healthy manhood involves hugging, holding hands, and kindness.

RE-LEARN

Re-learn your history: Find out about powerful women who have shaped our society and teach your children and other youth about their contributions.

LEARN MORE

Learn about the issue of violence against women and how men can be allies in the movement to stop it.
