Understanding the Benefits of Working with Men and Boys

Overwhelmingly it is men who hurt women. It is through work with men and boys that we can end violence against women. Men are not born violent. Some become violence as a result of destructive belief and expectations about what it means to be a man. They can choose not to perpetrate acts of violence and challenge those men who do. Men can also challenge ideals and attitudes which support violence against women. Besides, if women could end the violence, it would have been done already! To do so we must first understand the Man Box and the masculinities that are protected inside.

From the team behind Miss Representation, the film The Mask You Live In explores America’s narrow definition of masculinity and the harm it causes boys and men. Learn more here.
