Growing Boys into Men: Countering Traditional Masculinity Through Norms Change
As the national online community dedicated to advancing primary prevention of sexual violence and intimate partner violence, PreventConnect hosts a series of popular web conferences. These web conferences are lively discussions where participants engage with guests to explore a wide range of prevention topics.
The theme for the web conference series in 2010 will be Changing Norms to Prevent Sexual Violence and Intimate Partner Violence. PreventConnect's key partner, Prevention Institute, will lead the web conferences to explore specific strategies to change the norms that contribute to sexual violence, intimate partner violence and teen dating violence. Each web conference will investigate one of the five norms identified by Prevention Institute as contributing to violence against women.
