Earlier this year a TEDxWomen talk I delivered entitled “Violence and Silence” went viral. At this writing, the number of views it’s received is approaching 1.4 million. The subject of the talk is violence against women as a men’s issue. I argued that we need a paradigm shift in our approach to the issues of sexual and domestic violence; instead of seeing them as “women’s issues” that “good men” ought to help out with, we should see them as men’s issues, as most of the violence and abuse is done by men.
