Men in the Movement – A weeklong discussion about sexual violence

Drew, Joshua Adam

I am a strong advocate for women’s rights and proud to be involved in the anti-rape movement. (The fact that there even needs to be a movement against rape is pretty shocking when you think about it.) To be honest it’s not like there is a pro-rape party out there, rather to me, the anti-rape movement is more about raising awareness of a pernicious suite of ideas and cultural norms which propagate permissive or enabling attitudes towards rape. So rather than having a group advocating for rape which we oppose, we stand against actions which facilitate sexual violence.
