First Man Standing
Welcome to First Man Standing, an opportunity for men everywhere to be the first in their family, club, church or workplace to stand up and speak out about building strong relationships and ending violence against women. First Man Standing is being launched in association with Christian Vision for Men (see cvmen.org.uk).
What are we asking you to do?
We are proposing three steps for men to follow in order to make a difference:
- Respect all women everywhere and demonstrate love and support for women and children in your family. Find out more.
- Challenge other men by speaking out to your friends and colleagues about ending violence and negative attitudes towards women. Find out more.
- Join the cause and make a personal pledge. The form for this is below. If you want to know more about the White Ribbon Campaign, or to order a white ribbon to wear, go to: whiteribboncampaign.co.uk.
To find out more about First Man Standing you can download the First Man Standing leaflet here.
Be encouraged. You can and will change the culture around you and start to turn the tide of violence against women.
What happens next?
For those who sign up we will send out more ideas and details of how you can practically work through the implications of First Man Standing and send you a quarterly e-newsletter to keep you in touch with how the campaign is developing.
To take this further, and get ideas for how you can become more involved, click here.
First Man Standing will be developing bible studies and other materials for use by men’s groups. Find out more.
We would love to have your stories to be able to put on the website. To send these in or for further information contact Peter Grant.
