Men Ending Rape
The fact that men rape is obvious, but the fact that men can end rape is often an after thought. men ending rape is committed to ending rape by encouraging men to play a significant role in ending the perpetuation of a campus rape culture. This multi-media program is a nationally recognized presentation, offered to college audiences across the country. This presentation is theoretically and conceptually grounded and has demonstrated short-term and long-term influence on participants.
“Keith Edwards is an excellent speaker on men’s anti-violence issues. In addition to making a strong case for men’s involvement in ending violence against women, he is very conscientious about addressing the many social justice and privilege issues that pertain to men’s anti-violence work – issues that are not always addressed by speakers on this topic. He also has a very unique perspective on how men are hurt by violence against women, an important factor in motivating men to take action on this issue.”
– Alan Berkowitz, Independent Consultant and Editor of “Men and Rape: Theory, Research and Prevention Programs in Higher Education”
“I moved quickly through a range of emotion – including the most poignant anger, disbelief, frustration, and guilt – then landed in a place of conviction…Its message is both intellectually and emotionally powerful, the outcomes are realistically geared toward the individual and the group, and the passion is contagious. Not to be missed!”
-Christopher Elliott, Resident Director, Northern Arizona University
“There was a presenter to the students that my daughter raved about. She wanted to give him a standing ovation at the end, and wished that she had. She said that he presented a difficult subject in a clear and non-accusatory way. The latter was particularly important to her: the boys weren’t classified as predators; the girls weren’t classified as sirens. This came up later at the orientation group meeting, and both sexes were able to thoughtfully discuss the presentation without feeling automatically defensive. She also mentioned that he was capable of making jokes without making “icky” jokes. My daughter has had so many years of poorly-done presentations regarding human sexuality that she was not prepared to pay much attention to this new presentation. Even with that non-neutral starting point, your presenter was able to captivate and inform her. Thank you very much for making the campus a safer place through such a fine job.”
