Garth has recently researched and written a report for White Ribbon NZ on how they can align with the #Me Too Movement.
The report generates new understanding as it discusses the development and impact of #Me Too, and argues it’s now up to violence prevention campaigns to build on the heightened public awareness and promote the specific actions #Me Too asks of men.
Men need to:
– Transform their ideas about masculinity to be more open, respectful and healthier.
– Lsten to and believe women’s experiences of men.
– Reflect on past behaviour and commit to being more respectful.
– Disrupt other men when they disrespect or threaten women.
There’s a link to the report here. This page also describes how this year’s White Ribbon campaign will action this research – this is what Garth’s working on right now.
While this report is for White Ribbon, it is valuable to anyone involved in preventing men’s violence against women.
