Reaching and Engaging Men

  • Michael FloodEmail author
Part of the Global Masculinities book series (GLMAS)


Part II explores the strategies and settings which can be used to engage men and boys in preventing and reducing violence against women. It begins with the general challenge of making the project of preventing and reducing violence against women relevant and meaningful for men. This chapter begins with where men and boys stand: the extent to which men actually perpetrate violence against women, men’s attitudes towards this violence, and men’s beliefs and practices when it comes to speaking up or acting in opposition to this violence. Flood documents what prevents men from supporting and contributing to violence prevention campaigns, on the one hand, and what inspires men’s involvement on the other. The chapter then explores how to make the case to men that violence against women is an issue of direct relevance to them—how to inspire men that violence against women is a ‘men’s issue’.
