A CALL TO MEN created the LIVERESPECT™ Curriculum to help coaches, educators and mentors educate and encourage middle and high school boys to examine their attitudes and beliefs about manhood.
We recognize that the underlying causes of violence and discrimination against women and girls are rooted in the ways women have been traditionally viewed and treated in our society.
Although historically it has been almost entirely women who have been at the forefront of addressing this issue, we think it is essential that men play a primary role in the solution.
Research shows that men and boys who adhere to rigid, traditional notions of gender roles are more likely to report having used violence against a partner.
The goal of the LIVERESPECT™ Curriculum is to provide coaches, educators and mentors with tools to help raise awareness about healthy, respectful manhood and prevent violence and discrimination against all women and girls.
