What men can do to stop sexism and male violence

More articles about:

What can men do to stop sexism and men's violence against women? What can men do to build gender equality and prevent and reduce men's violence against women?

I wrote a flyer about the steps men can take to end violence against women way back in 1998 (below). Later, I compiled a collection of tips and guides, from a range of sources, in 2009. I've included this below, as a Word document. But I have now also added a range of other guides and sources. These include lengthy, detailed accounts of the kinds of actions men can take (such as my report, Men Speak Up: A toolkit for action in men’s daily lives), and short infographics and other materials. Chris Crass's piece is a particularly strong, intersectional account. Also see Julian Real's piece, available on XY here.

Additions are most welcome.
