Men’s Pledge

I affirm the value of women and girls everywhere,

and I WILL PROTECT NOT EXPLOIT them.

My Commitment…

NO PORNOGRAPHY
Because pornography exploits women and children, and because the demand for porn fuels the supply of trafficked victims, I will not consume pornography in any form. (video, internet, magazine, etc.)

NO PROSTITUTION
Because prostitution victimizes women and children, I will not buy sex or any related services.  (escort services, sexual entertainment, etc.)

NO ABUSE
Because abuse causes emotional and physical trauma, I will not physically or sexually abuse any woman or child.

NO HARASSMENT
Because sexual harassment insults a woman’s dignity, I will not engage in sexual harassment and I will speak up and intervene in any case of “eve-teasing” in public.

NO APATHY
Because ignoring the plight of one being abused only adds to the problem, if I see or hear of a woman or child being abused, I will act swiftly to stop it or report it.

Sex is a precious gift:  It is to be freely given,
not bought or sold or forced.
