Men Can Stop Rape (MCSR)’s comprehensive “From Theory to Practice” Training has equipped thousands of professionals and activists in engaging men to prevent gender-based violence.Through interactive group exercises, role-playing, and multi-media presentations, “From Theory to Practice” prepares participants with the skills necessary to motivate men to take a more active role in challenging attitudes and behaviors that support rape and other forms of men’s violence against women.
