When I think of powerful men within the movement to end sexual violence against women, Tony Porter often comes to mind. Within the world of violence prevention work he is well known as the inspiration co-founder of the nonprofit A Call to Men: The National Association of Men and Women Committed to Ending Violence Against Women. This nonprofit works tirelessly through education and public awareness campaigns to change the social norms that define masculinity. By promoting the concept of healthy masculinity, Tony Porter and his colleagues at A Call to Men believe that men can play a key role in ending violence against women and within our society as a whole. Below you will find his inspirational speech about breaking out of the “man box” and promoting healthy masculinity in young men.
