To look at the foundation that often supports men's violence against women. We will examine the context and construct of men's violence toward women and why most men remain silent about domestic violence and sexual assault. Three concepts will be examined; how all men are socialized to see women as having less value than men, that women are on some level seen as the property of men and that men are often taught that women are objects - here to serve men. Ted will also engage the audience in ways that men and boys can get involved and actually be the solution to ending domestic violence and all forms of violence against women and girls. And to provide practical approaches to a healthier and more respectful manhood.
