Engaging Men Campaign

Championed by PCADV, the Engaging Men campaign is designed to provide a much-needed male presence within the movement to end gender-based violence.

At PCADV, we recognize that men are also affected by unhealthy relationships and domestic violence. We would like for men to unite with us in the movement to end violence in all relationships.

Why Men?

Well, some men have felt isolated from this work even though they too are affected by domestic violence. Stereotypes about relationships, for example the need for men to always be “tough”, hurt men too. And we need everyone – women and men – involved if we want to end domestic violence.

We need to more purposefully engage men and boys – not because the majority of abusers are men, but because the majority of men are not abusers – making them perfect allies.
