EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS

The following is a list of suggested prevention strategies:

  • Change social norms
    • Traditional gender roles of men in society that promote domination, control, and dangerous risk-taking behavior
    • Traditional gender roles of women in society that promote objectification and oppression
    • Power where value is placed on claiming or maintaining control over others
    • Violence where aggression is tolerated and blame is attributed to victims
    • Privacy where those who witness violence are discouraged from intervening
  • Be role models
  • Mentor youth
  • Work with others to end violence
