Schuylkill Women in Crisis (SWiC) invites ALL men
to take the following pledge and then add your name.
Take the Pledge:
Men play a critical role in our nation’s efforts to stop violence against women. ALL men have the opportunity to serve as role models for other men and boys regarding the treatment of women and girls.
1. I WILL speak up, or call 911 for help, if another man is abusing his partner or is disrespectful to women and girls. I WILL not remain silent.
2. I WILL mentor and teach young boys how to be men in ways that don’t involve degrading or abusing girls or women.
3. Knowing that boys learn from men what it means to be a man – and girls what they should expect from men – I WILL not perpetrate violence against children or be silent while others do so.
4. I WILL be an ally to those working to end gender violence.
5. I WILL lead by example.
