A CALL TO MEN has created the LIVERESPECT ™ program to help coaches, educators and mentors promote healthy, respectful manhood.
We recognize that the underlying causes of violence and discrimination against women and girls are rooted in the ways females 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 get involved and play a primary role in the solution.
Research shows that men and boys who adhere to rigid, traditional notions of gender roles and masculinity are more likely to report having used violence against a partner.
The goal of the LIVERESPECT ™ program is to provide coaches, educators and mentors the tools to help raise awareness of healthy, respectful manhood and prevent violence and discrimination against all women and girls.
