Stand Up Dads: The Gender Conversation
Fathering Together is on a mission to empower dads to be agents for change and that begins with education. With our #StandUpDads initiative, we present public conversations to reflect on how we reinforce gender based violence and educate ourselves in ways to stop gender based violence in their communities.
Gender Based Violence takes on many forms. Street harassment, domestic violence, and rape are far more prevalent than we know. Millions of people, especially women and girls, are affected every day, and as fathers we have an obligation to educate ourselves to not only educate our children, but work to end violence so our children won't have to face it.
Explore some of our past Gender Equity Workshops
Pledge to stand up against gender based violence. Pledge yourself to NOT remain silent, and to educate yourself and your fellow dads to become the strong advocates that your children, your partners, and your community need.
Watch our latest public conversation: The Change We Must Make: A panel on fatherhood, sexual violence, and moving beyond "the protector."
ABOUT THE FILM
Directed and produced by Oscar nominees Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering, and first reported by The New York Times, On the Record presents the haunting story of former A&R executive Drew Dixon, whose career and personal life were upended by the alleged abuse she faced from her high-profile male bosses.
The documentary follows Dixon as she grapples with her decision to become one of the first women of color, in the wake of #MeToo, to come forward to publicly accuse hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons of sexual misconduct. The film chronicles Dixon’s story, as well as those of fellow Simmons accusers Sil Lai Abrams and Sheri Sher, delving into the ways black women’s voices are too often silenced and ignored when reporting these allegations.
