Men Stopping Violence is not a “bumper sticker” organization. They’re not about “lock ‘em up and throw away they key.” They are not afraid to do the hard work of helping men of all ages look deep into themselves for their own reasons for committing violence against women. It’s painful, courageous work. It’s a lot harder than simply putting offenders in orange jumpsuits and warehousing them in jails.
Sometimes the first step to making peace is simply not committing violence. Sometimes that first step is not so simple. Training and peer support helps immensely. It’s about creating a culture of care.
Men Stopping Violence worldwide is an indispensable resource in addressing the causes of violence, looking first within to the hidden justifications for the abuse and humiliating treatment of women.
