Storming Against Violence!
Storming Against Violence materials - Dr. Jackson Katz, Andrew O'Keefe, Dr. Michael Flood, Paul Zappa and film clips now available! here
Be the Hero! is an innovative, web-based violence prevention program for young men. It has been conceived, designed and produced by the Women's Trust.
The program encourages young men to build respectful relationships with women. It demonstrates that anyone can be the hero by choosing to live a life free of violence.
The website content has been designed for small groups of boys and young men - led by a male group leader or teacher - over at least four sessions.
Ideally, we would love to have boys and men all over Australia knowing that this program exists and accessing it as an important tool in building respectful relationships.
