About

A CALL TO MENUK is committed to ending Male Violence Against Women and Girls. We aim to do this by having real, positive impact on boys and men in promoting a healthier, happier, more complex concept of 'being a man' than is often offered to them as a model.

A CALL TO MEN UK believes that a key part of preventing domestic and sexual violence - which is overwhelmingly directed at women and girls - is men starting to critically challenge the way we are socialised as men.

Well-meaning men, who for the most part don't see themselves as part of the problem, need to get informed, get involved, and become part of the solution.

We provide men and boys with the understanding and tools to create sustainable change in the way they - and the society of which they are part - treat women and girls.

One of the tools is the MANBOX – a conceptual understanding of the unspoken rules for ‘being a man’ - the mentality, behaviours and restrictions to which many men and boys are socialised to conform. Awareness of such rules implies a conscious choice to abide by them or not. Our focus is on men taking responsibility for male behaviour, critically reflecting on it and striving to change it for the better. Ultimately we believe that there are huge benefits for men in supporting work aimed at the liberation of women.

OUR MISSION

A CALL TO MEN UK is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company. We recognise that the underlying causes of violence and discrimination against women and girls are rooted in the ways they have been traditionally viewed and valued in our society. Violence is both a cause and consequence of structural inequality between men and women

Our aim is to shift the social norms that negatively impact on our culture and promote a healthier and more respectful definition of manhood. We aim to achieve this by (i) providing men and boys with tools, practical methods and strategies to connect and address these social issues and in doing so (ii) liberate men and boys to play a primary role in the solution to end violence and discrimination against women and girls thereby (iii) creating an equal and just society for all.
