Changing Men: Best Practice in Sexual Violence Education

Women Against Violence: An Australian Feminist Journal
Issue 18 (2006)

Abstract: Efforts to end violence against women must address men. This notion is increasingly accepted in violence prevention circles, and this shift is fuelled by three key insights. First and most importantly, violence prevention must address men because largely it is men who perpetrate this violence. Most men are not violent and most practise consent in their sexual relations with women. Yet when a girl or woman is subject to sexual violence, the perpetrator usually is male. This also means that men themselves must take responsibility for preventing sexual assault.
