Men encouraged to #MANifest Change in their attitudes toward women this Valentine's Day

The Ottawa Coalition to End Violence Against Women, Crime Prevention Ottawa, and the Ottawa Police Service asks local men to create a powerful movement by pledging on February 14th to help end violence against women in their community. I can MANifest change is a public awareness campaign. Its goal is to positively engage men and boys in ending violence against women.

Rather than viewing men and boys as perpetrators, I can MANifest change is about empowering them. Men and boys need to see themselves as agents of change who can help put a stop to violence against women through their own actions, from challenging sexist locker room talk to donating to women-led organizations to teaching their sons to treat women as equals. It could be as simple as telling a friend not to tell sexist jokes, or rejecting media that condones gender-based violence. Follow hashtag MANifestChange on Twitter for Valentines ideas.
