This paper, published by the New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse provides an overview of effectively involving men and boys in the prevention of violence against women.
This issue has been identified internationally as one of the top 20 ‘practice innovations’ in violence and injury prevention during the past 20 years. Violence prevention efforts among men and boys can make a difference. Done well, they can shift the attitudes that lead to physical and sexual violence, and change behaviours which reduce male’s actual perpetration of violence. This paper builds on this development.
