Wednesday, October 5, 2011 - Male Role Models: Preventing Violence Against Women

This is a very short video from (under 5 minutes) from the WIE Forum (Women: Inspiration and Enterprise) - Tony Porter talks about how men have been conditioned to devalue women, and that to change this we need to recruit men who other men look up to who can set a different and better example.

Tony Porter, co-founder of A Call to Men, stresses the importance of positive role models for young boys - men who both speak out and live a life against domestic violence.
