Safe Spaces for Learning: Engaging Boys & Men to End Gender-Based Violence

November 16, 2014 Michael Kaufman

Earlier this year, the United Nations Girl’s Education Initiative videoed a five minute conversation with me about gender-based violence. They were interested in knowing more about

the impact of violence against violence on girls and also on boys. We talked about why it’s an issue for men and the responsibility of all men to work alongside women to bring the violence to an end. And, as an educator, I talked about the special role that educators must play to end the violence.

November 25 is the UN’s International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and the start of 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.

As a small contribution to ending the violence, I hope you’ll share this video with the educators and parents you know.
