Violence against women and girls in the United States of America is at epidemic proportions. Look at these statistics:
- Every 9 seconds in the US a woman is assaulted or beaten.
- Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women—more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined.
- Nearly 1 in 5 teenage girls who have been in a relationship said a boyfriend threatened violence or self-harm if presented with a breakup.
- Everyday in the US, more than three women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends.
A CALL TO MEN, an organization that educates men all over the world on healthy, respectful manhood, produced the following video to encourage men to do their part to end violence against women.
Embracing and promoting a healthy, respectful manhood prevents violence against women, sexual assault and harassment, bullying and many other social ills.
