ALLIES OF CHANGE – PREVENTING VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN (SENIOR MEN)

In conjunction with the Champions of Change course, Allies of Change is aimed specifically at adult men. If our society is to experience a reduction in violence towards women, the change needs to be driven largely by men. This requires men to believe that the cause is vital and that our role as allies is the number one factor that will change the outcomes for women and girls. This session does not start from a position of blame. It is a positive course that educates, motivates, and equips men to take responsibility, to hold each other accountable and to be proactive allies.

Topics covered in the presentation include:

  • What it means to be a good man
  • The current reality women and girls face 
  • The drivers of violence against women and girls
  • The role of men as allies and being part of the solution 
  • Our response as a club

“We knew we had to get traditional men to buy into being part of the change to reduce violence against women and girls. We turned to SALT because they know how to talk to men in a way that is positive but challenging.”
