All men can play a part in ending violence against women.
Violence is more than physical violence. It includes disrespect, fear and control towards women.
Being an ally is about
- being aware of your own privilege and power, and
- taking action together with women
to end this violence and create a more equal society that values and respects women.
We acknowledge that binary and heteronormative language and concepts are used here as part of the 16 days campaign that aims to end violence against women. But gender is a social construct and whatever your gender identity, we hope you will find this information and activities interesting and join us in ending violence against all people.
