This commentary offers one woman’s response to men in the movement to end domestic violence.

"For the men's movement, searching for a healthy experience of maleness, this moment of choice is no less dramatic or unsettling. The decision to give up male centrality, to listen to those who have been marginalized, to be willing to perceive a broader, richer reality than male supremacy offers, means giving up all forms of controlling and abusive behaviors and learning new skills with which to negotiate the intricate, demanding transition that lies ahead."
