This Special Collection provides resources for anti-violence programs to increase their capacity to engage men and boys in their work to end violence against women.

  • provides a framework for evaluating program readiness to support male engagement;
  • examines “hot topics” for engaging men in primary prevention work;
  • reviews how violence shapes the lives of men and boys; and
  • discusses privilege, leadership, and accountability as it relates to the work of men in the anti-violence movement.
