Men Can Take a Stand

Resources for men

Most men are not abusive. They love and respect women and girls in their lives, and it wouldn't occur to them to be disrespectful.  

Men need to speak out publicly against the violence.

  • Take action as a bystander witnessing violence or abuse.
  • Serve as a role model and mentor for other men and boys.
  • Work as an ally with others to help end gender-based violence.

Expanding the number of men who are motivated to take on a more action-oriented role is one of the keys to ending gender-based violence
