Rus Ervin Funk
I am Rus Funk, based in Louisville, KY USA. I have been working to engage men to end all forms of men's violence against women and others for over 25 years. I am the author of "Stopping Rape: A Challenge for Men" (the first book by a man for men about stopping rape) and "Reaching Men: Strategies for Preventing Sexist Attitudes, Behaviors and Violence (Jist Publications, 2006).
I am currently director of MensWork -- a grassroots social change organization that focuses on promoting male leadership to end all forms of sexual and domestic violence.
I am also active in advancing reproductive justice, and am on the board of our local ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project.
