WHY We Do It

The truth is, most men are extremely uncomfortable with the issue of  gender violence, domestic violence and sexual violence. Yet, voices remain silent and action is not taken. Why? There are a number of reasons  which stem from individual and cultural belief systems, physical environments, personal circumstances, lack of education and much more.


MAVAW exists to break down those barriers and help men define their own language, cadence and confidence in speaking up as a bystander.
