So many men. Men stepped up and perhaps some will get out of their comfort zone and will speak on the specific subject that is the fight against violence. Also, there is ample evidence showing that women are more vulnerable to gender-based violence than men but I believe the fight against the phenomenon should be owned by all of us, regardless of gender.
