Center for Relationship Abuse Awareness- http://stoprelationshipabuse.org/get-involved/mens-pledge-to-end-violence-against-women/
I, ________ , pledge to never commit nor support gender violence, in all its manifestations. I pledge to be an active bystander, to speak up against gender violence and sexism, and to teach other men how we can help end gender violence.
I will stop the violence, I will protest the inequality, I will build for justice.
Silence Breaker- https://www.causes.com/actions/1629959-silence-breaker-pledge
I promise to never commit, condone, or remain silent about domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse or other forms of violence against women, men and children.
I will encourage men and women to mentor children to live violence-free, and I will work together with other men and women to end all interpersonal violence. Wherever possible I will report all known, suspected or witnessed incidents of domestic violence or child abuse to an agency/ organization who can assist the victims. I will educate myself as well as my friends, family and children about healthy relationships.
I promise to teach my sons to respect women and that strength is not defined by violence or domination.
I promise to teach my daughters self-esteem and self-worth
The HeForShe Commitment:
Gender equality is not only a women’s issue, it is a human rights issue that requires my participation. I commit to take action against all forms of violence and discrimination faced by women and girls.
