ManUpState#ManUPstate is a collaborative social movement led by Safe Harbor that emphasizes the role men can play in ending violence against women. Violence against women is not a “women’s issue”; good men must also participate in ending it by understanding unhealthy cultural messages regarding gender, masculinity and violence. ManUPstate challenges these subtle but harmful social norms that lead to a quiet acceptance of violence/discrimination toward women and girls. We strive to give men a mindset and vocabulary to take responsibility for ending violence against women and to model healthy attitudes about what it means to ‘be a man’.
