30 Days of Demanding the Change: Day 22

Engage the men in your life to inspire a change of heart by getting involved in the prevention of sexual violence. 

We need everyone to demand the change in order to put an end to the sexually toxic messages in our society.  Oftentimes sexual violence is considered a “woman’s issue”.  However, men can play an important role in speaking out against the sexism and inequalities they see in their environment.  For example, a male speaking out against a sexist joke or comment will inspire a change of heart from a different place versus a female demanding the same change.  Individually this message can be effective, but together this message cannot be ignored.  Encourage men to send the message that the current sexism, stereotypes, and inequalities found in our communities and society are no longer acceptable.

Men can use their sphere of influence to address, challenge, and change the current status of women and girls in our society-they can demand the change.  All genders will benefit from gender equality.

Together we can demand the change and inspire a change of heart.
