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".
