5 powerful and simple things men can do
How we can help make Ireland the safest place for women and children
Let’s break out of the narrow definition of manhood. Let’s be a model for younger boys and children. Let’s teach them with our words and actions that being a strong man means respecting women and caring for others.
We are listened to by our friends and colleagues. We may say things in ways that women don’t. So, let’s speak out when we see or hear behaviour that we think is degrading, abusive or controlling. Silence allows domestic violence to continue.
Listen & Learn
Take time to listen and learn more about violence and abuse and the impact it has on women and children. It will help us recognize it if it occurs to someone close to us, or even if it happens to you. While most domestic and sexual violence is carried out by men against women, men are also victims of violence – by both men and women.
