A recent article in the Washington Post highlights the prevalence of sexual violence against boys, along with the impact on society, including increased incidents of physical and sexual violence, substance abuse, mental health and more. It's written by staff reporter, Emma Brown, who speaks from her own experience as a mother trying to raise her son. Brown writes with compelling evidence about not just the untold prevalence of violence against boys but also about how it is a critical contributor to violence against girls and women. At Learning Courage, we agree wholeheartedly with her conclusions. We clearly need more male voices talking about this to break down the deeply seeded cultural beliefs before we can effectively tackle this issue.
Learning Courage membership gives your school timely, relevant and vital information about how to reduce sexual misconduct and respond appropriately to incidents when they do occur.
