Men Can Stop Rape - An Inspiring Thought and Organization

          An organization that I have recently come across which interests me greatly is the “Men Can Stop Rape” nonprofit organization, whose tagline reads “Creating Cultures Free from Violence”.  Men Can Stop Rape (MCSR) was founded in 1997, and in 2005 launched the “Show Your Strength” Campaign, which encourages men to show their strength in positives ways and to realize that men can be the ones to stop rape and harassment.  MCSR’s vision is “to institutionalize primary prevention of men’s violence against women through sustained initiatives that generate positive, measurable outcomes in populations throughout the world”. 
          I could continue to talk about the organization, but their website does a great job of explaining the reasons behind Men Can Stop Rape and the current campaigns.  I’ll leave you instead with the link to the website and some of the promotional posters used for MCSR.  I am happy to see this organization working to speak to men about rape, going against the status-quo of only educating women about how to avoid rape.
