I have really enjoyed reading the posts from other contributors. I especially enjoyed the research around getting men involved, gender stereotypes and getting people to talk so I would like to build upon these ideas.

Christine commented on Empowering Men

Hi Camille,

Thank you for your response. I agree with you that we need to address this issue from multiple angles.

Additionally, I really liked your contributions with the safety app and wristband. I see how that could be a helpful tool for keeping women safe. Also, I have a nephew who is autistic so I am happy to see that it is also being utilized by parents with autistic children.

Hi Mia,

I conducted a few women's safety interviews last weekend and I thought of your contribution.

Two of the respondents mentioned how important it is to receive the right message at home regarding how to treat women.

I wanted to let you know since that supports your concept!

Hi Mia,

I agree with you that it’s very important to empower young men.

I liked your suggestion regarding changing the home environment.

After reading your post I looked up the article below which I thought you might find interesting. The article mentions possible links between witnessing abusive behavior and becoming an abuser.
