Man UP , A campaign to end Violence against women

Man Up is a global campaign, launched in September of 2009, to activate
youth to stop violence against women and girls. Our call to action
challenges each of us to “man up” and declare that violence against
women and girls must end.

In order to break the cycle of trauma and misinformation unabated violence against women and girls bestows on
individuals, families, communities and societies around the world, Man
Up Campaign was created to give young people a voice in developing
models of change that truly address this issue.

Through the universal platforms of sport, music, technology and the arts, Man Up
Campaign is partnering with young men and women around the world by
providing innovative training, resources and support to youth informed
initiatives. This partnership works to build a network of young
advocates and defenders, linking their efforts to those of community
based and mainstream organizations, entertainment and sports
communities, non-profits and corporations towards our common cause.

This summer, Man Up will bring together a prestigious team of
delegates, along with artists, athletes and activists to launch a
five-year campaign at an inaugural Young Leaders Summit in Johannesburg,
South Africa during the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

In 2014 this same group of Man Up Delegates will gather again at World Cup 2014 in
Brazil to share their experiences, build community, and further develop
methodologies to strengthen their efforts.

Am proud to be part of this. For more information on how you can get involved follow:

It is a welcome development.It's worthy to say that violence against women is increasing especially in the area of inheritance rights as it is common in my State-Akwa Ibom of Nigeria where women are not allow to inherit properties from their parents.I wil like to be attend if scholarship can be assured.

In a society where woman liberties and fundamental human rights seized there is bound to be inequality that can lead to violence from the husband or boy friend if little signs of desire to the prevailing dominant conditions by the woman is detected by the husband or the opposite sex. Violence against women is more common in patriarchal societies found in west Africa and the western world. Men dominate in the major decision making bodies imposing unfavourable laws affecting the productive capacity of women in the society.
Men should salute women with full respect and give them the freedom to participate in the collective development i the society they happened to find themselves.

This is progressive and timely in my country where almost in a row we see TV scenes of women murdered in cold blood by their 'husbands'. In some cases children witness and begin to take it as normal occurances. We need to break the cycle and create/transform a new a society that respects it citizenry where all enjoy equal rights. I am passionate about this cause and will do any thing to end it because we are robbed everyday of our dear sisters, mothers, daughters and commorades.
