Men teaching men.

February 6, 2010


I call on men and boys everywhere to join us. Break the silence. When you witness violence against women and girls, do not sit back. Act. Advocate. Unite to change the practices and attitudes that incite, perpetrate and condone this violence. Violence against women and girls will not be eradicated until all of us – men and boys – refuse to tolerate it.

– UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon

Ban Ki-Moon launched the Network of Men Leaders to End Violence Against Women in November 2009, at the official observance of the 10th anniversary of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. He believes that “men must teach each other that real men do not violate or oppress women” and I think that’s pretty cool.
