The Men Can Pledge 2004 (approximate)
As a man I know the realities of violence
against women & children.
I have taken a hard
look at the facts. Millions of women &
children are beaten, raped, sexually harassed
& stalked every year. These women & children
live in fear of what tomorrow might bring.
Today I take a stand to stop the violence
because I am the friend, family, & companion of
those who have suffered. I have made a
commitment to turn my private concern into
public action. I promise to treat all women &
children with dignity & respect. I will
intervene when I see destructive behaviors
that can dehumanize & humiliate others. I
will defend those who cannot defend
themselves by taking action.
I will promote a new kind of society where
decency & respect require no special day on
the calendar, where boys are taught that
violence does not equal strength & where
men stand with courage, lead with conviction
& speak with one voice that says "no more".
