Resources for Engaging Men & Boys

Preventing gender-based violence means changing the social norms that tolerate and reinforce intimate partner and sexual violence. In order to effectively do so in a comprehensive, sustainable way, men and boys must be part of the solution.

Men and boys receive, sort through, and enforce messages about relationships, violence, and power every day. They also send powerful messages that can sanction peer actions and attitudes. They experience forms of oppression (racism, classism, ableism, heterosexism, etc…) that affect members of society, but men and boys have greater access to influence and social structures because of their gender., a national online resource center on violence against women, has released a special collection of resources that address this primary prevention strategy.
This collection of resources offers prevention strategies that move beyond risk reduction, while still honoring the history and principles of the violence against women movement.
