What men can do to stop sexism and male violence

Ten things men can do

What can men do to stop sexism and men's violence against women? What can men do to build gender equality and prevent and reduce men's violence against women?

This XY collection focuses on the practical actions men can take to make a difference. It includes detailed accounts of the kinds of actions men can take such as my report, Men Speak Up: A toolkit for action in men’s daily lives, and short infographics and other materials.

Men Speak Up outlines exactly what it is we are trying to reduce and prevent, identifies how speaking up and taking action make a difference, explores what men can do, and notes the strategies with which to nourish personal strength, support and inspiration.

I wrote a flyer about the steps men can take to end violence against women way back in 1998 (below). Later, I compiled a collection of tips and guides, from a range of sources, in 2009. I've included this below. But I have now also added a range of other guides and sources. Chris Crass's piece is a particularly strong, intersectional account. Also see Julian Real's piece, available on XY here and this detailed account of how to challenge everyday sexism.
