Brazilian Ministry of Health (Men's Health Coordination) developed five posts to be disseminated through the ministry's facebook page and other media. They targeted men, asking them to reflect about violence against women. This also represented a partnership with the Brazilian White Ribbon Campaign, developed by the Brazilian Network of Men for Gender Equity.
POST 1: "Have you ever asked women around you – your mother, wife, girlfriend, sister, friend – how they feel when they are harassed in public spaces?"
POST 2: "Have you ever tried to imagine how it would feel like to live with the fear of being a victim of sexual violence?"
POST 3: "How many times have you heard of situations of violence against women in your family but did nothing about it?"
POST 4: "Have you ever stopped to think how you could contribute to a society with less violence against women?"
POST 5: POST WITH THE COUPLE: “December 6th, National Day to Mobilize Men to End Violence against Women (law 11.489/07) Brazilian White Ribbon Campaign."

Mandy Van Deven has been writing about gender-based violence for a long time, but now is her chance to tell the story in a whole new way. She has teamed up with Newsweek and Beacon to launch a journalism project on campus sexual assault.
She will be visiting college campuses across the US to do reporting about how responses to campus sexual assault are changing and what still needs to be done. The project is a unique chance to provide in-depth coverage rather than a story tied to sensational headlines or high-profile cases.
Most importantly, this is a chance to bring stories about the work being done to make campuses safer to new audiences nationwide when they run in Newsweek. You can help raise awareness about this project and make the reporting possible by spreading the word to your networks of friends, family, and fellow advocates.
It would be really appreciative if you'd shared this link on your email lists, social media, and website: http://www.beaconreader.com/projects/understanding-the-college-rape-crisis
And if anyone here would like to speak about campus safety efforts they're involved in, please reach out directly.
