In discussing domestic violence, it is important to note that most men in this country aren’t abusive. The question emerges, however, of the role that non-violent men have in preventing violence against women.
Rus Erin Funk, author of Stopping Rape: A Challenge for Men, writes “I want to see men come together to discuss these issues, and to plan how to dismantle this system of domination and control that keeps men in a position as victimizer or threat. That is our, men’s work…We have the ability to create a world where all women, children and men are safe from the threat of men’s violence.” (Funk, 1993, p. 129)
