When it comes to the very serious effort of seeking to eradicate violence against women, there are rarely any easy and simple answers. Quick fixes, magic potions and instant solutions are the domains of fairytales and movies. Real life is eminently more challenging.

Young boys were introduced to a young girl and told to do various things to her, such as make a funny face, caress her, etc. Then, they are told to slap her. The response of these young boys is inspiring. Hat’s off to the many young men here who just showed there’s much to hope for in the fight to end violence against women.
