It’s not enough to just be one of the good guys anymore, you have to stand up and join the fight against sexism and gender violence.
That’s the message of a new campaign launched last week by NAPE.
NAPE President Jerry Earle says the breaking point for him was when he began attending the In Her Name vigil and hearing the list of murdered women growing each year.
He says it’s an uncomfortable conversation for men to have, but it’s men themselves who now have to step up and say no more.
Federation of Labour President Mary Shortall says Newfoundland and Labrador has some of the highest rates of domestic violence in the country.
The “Don’t Be That Guy” campaign encourages involvement by talking about sexism and consent.
