A CALL TO MEN UK

A CALL TO MEN UK believes that a key part of preventing domestic and sexual violence is men starting to critically challenge the way we are socialised as men.

Well-meaning men - who for the most part don't see themselves as part of the problem – need to get informed, get involved, and become part of the solution.

In schools, youth work settings and elsewhere we provide boys & young men, through dialogue sessions facilitated by our trained coaches, the understanding and tools to create sustainable change.

One of the tools is the MANBOX – a conceptual understanding of the unspoken rules for ‘being a man’ - the mentality, behaviours and restrictions to which many men and boys are socialised to conform.

Awareness of such rules provides the choice to abide by them or not. We strongly believe that the liberation of women from male violence and sexism is a priority for the benefit of all societies and cultures and that it would also offer transformational opportunities to men in the process.

Pathways Covered

Domestic Abuse, Sexual Abuse and Sex Work

Overview

A CALL TO MEN UK believes that preventing domestic and sexual violence is ultimately the responsibility of men – well-meaning men who for the most part don't see themselves as part of the problem – need to get involved, and become part of the solution.

A CALL TO MEN UK is committed to the creation of a world where all men and boys are loving and respectful and all women and girls are valued and safe. We recognise that the underlying causes of violence and discrimination against women and girls are rooted in the ways women and girls have been traditionally viewed and treated in our society. Our aim is to shift the social norms that negatively impact our culture and promote a more healthy and respectful definition of manhood and masculinity.

We achieve this by (i) providing men and boys with tools, practical methods and strategies to connect and address these social issues and in doing so (ii) liberate men and boys to play a primary role in the solution to end violence and discrimination against women and girls thereby (iii) creating an equal and just society for all.

What we do

A CALL TO MEN UK provides training and education to all.

We actively seek partnership working with schools, colleges, communities and all organisations who work with domestic, sexual and family violence, in order to end all forms of violence against women and girls. We provide men, boys and the women who share their lives with the understanding and tools to create sustainable change.

One of the tools is the MANBOX – a conceptual understanding of the unspoken rules for ‘being a man’ - the mentality, behaviours and restrictions that many men and boys are socialised to conform to. Awareness of such rules provides the choice to abide by them or not. We strongly believe that the liberation of men is directly tied to the liberation of women.
