What Can Men Do? Men helping to end gender-based violence
While our sisters march at Take Back the Night, we invite men - adult men, young men and Trans men - to join us and discuss how we can support their effort to work toward a future with no violence against women. Men must answer an urgent call to action, as we can be allies, partners, role models to other men & engaged bystanders. Let’s talk about how we can be a part of change, with Urgency and with Love.
Jeff Perera is a Program Manager for the White Ribbon Campaign, the world’s largest effort to engage men and boys in working to end violence against women. Jeff speaks to people from all walks of life around how society’s unattainable concepts of masculinity are effecting men and boys and impacting women and girls.
