Survey: Most Men Are Taking Action to Stop or Prevent Domestic Violence

June 13, 2007

Charleston, WV - With Father's Day coming up, a growing number of men say stopping domestic violence should be a "guy thing." According to a new poll from the Family Violence Prevention Fund, most men believe they have a responsibility to stop domestic violence and sexual assault, and they want to do more to stop it.

Tonia Thomas with the West Virginia Coalition Against Domestic Violence says men can make a big difference, especially when it comes to raising the next generation.

"Teach young boys about how to be men in ways that don't involve degrading or abusing girls and women."

Thomas says men can also help by speaking up when they see other men being abusive, encouraging them to seek counseling. Sue Julian, also with the Coalition, says a growing number of West Virginia men are learning how to do this, by attending workshops on domestic violence and sexism, getting involved in anti-abuse groups, and recognizing that domestic violence is a men's issue.

"Men are wanting to understand on a deeper level the causes of violence against women, and they want to be part of the work to create something new."

Julian says men can also encourage victims of domestic violence to call for help. The national hotline for domestic violence victims is 1-800-799-SAFE.
