Teach your son....

Found these pictures of billboard ads online from the Family Violence Prevention Fund.

Can we chang the image of women in the media by changing the way we raise boys ?


  1. On the surface this seems like a great campaign. But I guess this depends on one's definition of "respect."

    My father would argue respecting a woman also includes opening the door for her, letting her off the elevator first, calling her ma'am or miss, complimenting her appearance, letting a lady have your seat on the subway and not letting her pay for anything on a date.

    Is that also "respect" is that sexist?

    What is respect and does the amount or kind of respect you give depend on gender?

    I don't know.
