Your Call: What is effective anti-rape education for men?

Lisa Norwood
A boy marching with his mom at the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes men's march to raise awareness about rape, sexual assault, and gender violence, September 8th, 2007, in Beaverton, OR.


On the August 26th edition of Your Call, we’re talking about  countering rape culture in a way that speaks to young men.

As colleges prepare for a new class of freshmen, they’re focusing on sexual assault prevention.  What’s the best way to reach young men who may themselves be victims – and who are also the most likely perpetrators of sexual violence.  What are we telling boys and young men about sex and consent?   


Andrees M. Montilliano is the Executive Director for Community Violence Solutions. 

Adrian Valdivia is the Manager of National Programs for Men Can Stop Rape. 

David S. Lee is the Director of Prevention Services for California Coalition Against Sexual Assault - CALCASA.
