Host:
David Lee, Prevention Connection

Presenter:
Esta Soler, President, Family Violence Prevention Fund

Guests:

This web conference — featuring one of the nation's leading experts on violence against women and one of its top pollsters — explored the latest research into men's views on domestic violence and sexual assault.  Do men think this violence is common? Do they worry about the safety of women they know?  What exactly are they willing to do to help stop violence?  What messages resonate most with men?  How can advocates engage men more effectively in prevention?  In addition to reviewing the results of a new poll, experts discussed effective strategies for engaging men.

Materials:

Learning Objectives:

  • Assess the value of engaging men in efforts to prevent violence against women.
  • Describe the outcomes of the FVPF's nationwide survey of men, conducted this spring with support from Verizon Wireless, with attention to findings among younger men.
  • Explore how to use the survey findings to advance efforts to engage men in helping to prevent domestic violence and sexual assault.
