Men and Boys

MEN & BOYS need to be involved in the fundamentals of educational programs to shift the responsibility equally to them for no more violence inflicted on females of every & any age. Such programs need to be supported by governments (almost entirely run by men anyway), churches, schools, & all community organizations possible.

For far too long the pressure has been on girls & women to educate males on the tremendous need for restraint & a sense of their own empathy & responsibility in their relationships w/ girls & women.

Boys & men tend to really listen only to other males even though very, very few in any society/culture/community have the
emotional intelligence to initiate the woefully necessary groups & classes to teach & inspire male growing up & grasping the
assaulted-female situation that exists the world over.

Thanks For Your Attention.

This story was written for World Pulse’s Ending Violence Against Women Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring an end to gender-based violence. The EVAW Campaign elicits powerful content from women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as vocal grassroots leaders, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

Hi Jynx

Hi Jynx,

Thank you for writing and being a part of the WorldPulse community. You are right---both men and women need to be teaching and supporting the respect of men and women! When in a male-dominated society, men can play an especially important role. As far as your writing is concerned, I would recommend adding in personal stories from your life or others as a way of drawing the reader in to such an important topic and adding more flavor.

Keep writing!
Happy New Year!
Mila
