We are in the midst of an ongoing crisis. Violence against women is one of the most pervasive and deadliest human rights violations that affect millions around the world every year. Yet, despite its prevalence and devastating impact, violence against women remains largely unreported, undiscussed, and unaddressed – often due to a lack of awareness or taboos around discussing such a complex issue. But taking a stand on this issue is essential if we ever want to make real progress. That’s why it’s time for men around the world, from diverse backgrounds, cultural contexts and belief systems – to take a stand together against any form of gender-based violence and be part of the solution.
You can start by taking ownership of your own actions and joining forces with others in the fight for creating safe homes and public lives free from oppression. Whether it’s signing up for anti-violence campaigns or lending your support to survivors – every action counts towards making this change happen.
