Be More Than a Bystander

At its core, the Be More Than a Bystander model recognizes that the vast majority of men do not commit violence against women. Instead, they care deeply about the women and girls in their lives and in the world. We ask those men to take ownership and play an active role in creating positive change. Many people welcome and support this approach. From the beginning, enthusiasm for this program has continued to grow, leaving no doubt that engaging men and boys as allies to “Break the Silence on Violence Against Women” is an idea whose time has come.
