Free Roundtable: Men of Faith Working to End Domestic Violence
There is an ongoing discussion about whether or not violence against women (gender‐based violence) is a women’s issue ‐‐‐ meaning that it is up to women to try to prevent it and to deal with its consequences. Most of us are clear that violence against women is only a women’s issue in that we have to live with the threat and deal with the consequences. But the work to end violence against women which is mostly perpetrated by men lies with men. This is true in both the secular and faith communities. As women have taken leadership to reveal and address gender‐based violence, a few good men have stepped up as allies and leaders. We have invited three colleagues to reflect as men of faith on why they work to end gender‐based violence and how they engage other men to join in this work.
