Men Taking a Stand to End Violence against Women Workshop facilitated by Bob Pease
Wednesday, December 5, 2012 from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM
What is the role of men in addressing men’s violence against women?
There has been a shift from focusing on men as perpetrators to involving them as partners in primary prevention strategies. However, what does working with men in violence prevention mean and why should non-violent men be involved?
Facilitated by Prof Bob Pease, Chair in Social Work, this experiential workshop aims to:
• raise awareness about the forms and prevalence of men’s violence against women
• use a combination of experiential exercises and a presentation of ideas for discussion
• explore why non-violent men should challenge the sexism and violence of other men
• discuss the relationship between men’s violence and dominant forms of masculinity
• talk about practical things men can do to challenge sexism.
Bob Pease is Chair of Social Work at Deakin University. His main research interests are in the fields of men’s violence against women, cross-cultural and global perspectives on men and masculinities, the interrogation of privilege and critical social work practice.
His most recent books are: Migrant Men: Critical Studies of Masculinities and the Migration Experience (co-editor, Routledge 2009); Critical Social Work: Theories and Practices for a Socially Just World (co-editor Allen and Unwin 2003); Undoing Privilege: Unearned Advantage in a Divided World (Zed Books 2011).
He was a founding member of Men against Sexual Assault in Melbourne and has been involved in campaigns and community education against men’s violence for many years.
