How We Raise Our Boys:
Engaging Men to Prevent Violence Against Women
May 12, 2015
Sadly, physical and sexual violence against women is one of those issues that impacts us all – whether in the form of domestic violence, sexual assaults on college campuses or in the military, or in our communities. Unfortunately, the common denominator in the vast majority of these situations is men perpetrating the violence. With as many as one in three women experiencing some form of sexual abuse, harassment, stalking, or rape, it’s high time we start having conversations about how we raise our boys.
This forum features a keynote by Ted Bunch fro A Call To Men. They advocate for the need to talk about male socialization and the culture that objectifies women and perpetuates the cycle of men feeling entitled to use women to meet their own needs. They argue that men need to own our role in the solution, if we’re truly going to be able to prevent violence against women and children.
