Because we all have daughters
For many years, the violence against women has been seen as primarily a "woman's issue" instead of as a human issue. The question is, "Why would man want to get involved in ending violence against women?" The answer is very simple: "because they have daughters." Men have daughters, sisters, friends, mothers, co-workers and other women in their lives who men want to be safe but they do not have the skills or tools to help create that safety.
As a beginning step, Because We Have Daughters provides a unique opportunity for fathers to learn about their daughters' realities by sharing fun and educational activities, followed by discussions about any insights they gained from the activities. This helps men understand what it would be like for their daughters, and all women, to live fully and freely without fear of violence.
The training consists of a four-hour day full of games, activities and arts and crafts. The day ends with reflection, appreciation and snacks.
