This is a great list of resources for encouraging healthy masculinity, gender equality and resources for domestic and sexual abuse victims. Some of the resources mentioned are regional, but many are national. I wish I would have had this information available several years ago, Thanks for sharing!

Why is it that, when we talk about sexual violence and domestic abuse, we talk about the women involved and erase the men from the conversation? In today’s talk, violence-prevention educator Jackson Katz explains why sentences like “Mary is a battered woman” are far more common in the cultural dialogue surrounding these issues than ones like “John beat Mary.”
[ted_talkteaser id=1753]The takeaway of Katz’s talk, given at TEDxFiDiWomen: That we have to stop thinking of violence against women as purely a women’s issue, and start thinking of it as a men’s issue too.
