December 7 - Day 13: Engaging Allies

Dear <<First Name>>

Did you know:  

Engaging men and boys in preventing violence against women and promoting gender equality can have positive effects.

The WHO states:

Research shows that the root causes of violence against women include harmful masculine norms and the acceptance of violence as a social norm. Surveys show that men and boys with more rigid views about masculinity are more likely to report having used violence against their partners. Therefore, working with men and boys on gender equality is necessary to reduce violence against women. A number of interventions that promote gender equality with men and boys show promise.
The White Ribbon Campaign has been a strong ally for Zonta in Canada and they work to engage men and boys to change the culture of violence against women through their campaigns and programs.
