Are Maine men standing up to domestic violence?

Carlin Whitehouse of Portland, a prevention program educator for Family Crisis Services in Bridgton, recently wrote an OpEd for the BDN called “A Maine man against violence against women.” That headline is also the slogan for bumper stickers making their way around the state on cars, vans and trucks. The goal is to get more men speaking up about a problem they have the power to stop.

“Because when we get really honest about the reality of who is perpetrating the vast majority of sexual and intimate partner violence in this world, it becomes obvious that we men have the most ability to do something about ending it!” Whitehouse writes.
