Global Call to Action for Men and Male Leaders!
From the Rwanda Men's Resource Centre
and Men's Resources International
Speak out against gender-based violence in Kenya!
Add your voice -- sign and share this pledge! Men's Pledge Against Gender Based Violence
Today, Kenya is experiencing an unprecedented wave of sexual violence that has been directed at thousands of Kenyan women, girls and a number of men and boys.
As men, we recognize that violence against women and the girl child affects men as well as women, those we care for, the family, you & me, the community and the nation.
We recognize that men and male leaders have an important role to play in stopping gender-based violence, and acting as role models for other men.
Today, we are joining our voices to denounce gender-based violence in Kenya and to publicly commit ourselves to working in active solidarity with women and NGOs struggling to end the ongoing gender-based violence in the conflict that has gripped Kenya.
As men, we call upon other men and male leaders to publicly speak out, and to join in this global call to protect Kenyan women and children, to demand that the government act to protect citizens against sexual assaults, and to stop sexual attacks that are linked to police and armed militias.
As men, we affirm that Positive Masculinity is about you and me and what we do to bring about positive change in humanity.
By signing this pledge you are committing yourself to be a role model for positive masculinity and to promote gender equality and equity beginning with your environment: your family, friends, work place, and community. Be part of the solution!
