We believe that questioning men’s and women’s attitudes and expectations about gender roles is crucial to achieving gender equality.
We believe that manhood is NOT defined:
- by how many sexual partners you have,
- by using violence against women or men,
- by how much pain you can endure,
- by how much power you can exert over others,
- or by whether you are gay or straight.
We believe that manhood IS defined:
- by building relationships based on respect and equality,
- by speaking out against violence in your society,
- by having the strength to ask for help,
- by shared-decision making and shared power,
- and by how much you are able to respect the diversity
- and rights of those around you.
