Masculinities Mondays: 24th Feb 2014

This week I  want to draw your attention to an excellent campaign by the Canberra Rape Crisis Centre and the  Women’s Centre for Health Matters in ACT, Australia.

The ‘What to Say‘ campaign is designed to help men recognise sexual violence and call it out. It gives practical and realistic advice on what to say and what to do when male friends are being abusive or harassing women. Of course, it’s always difficult to stand up to friends, and especially in a culture where male sexual control over women is encouraged and normalised, but this culture will only change if all of us take a stand and say something when we see or hear our friends disrespecting women.
