How can we teach boys not to become violent men?

Article here. Excerpt:

'A school environment in which male pupils feel empowered to process their emotions and respond to their own personal difficulties could reduce the presentation of toxic masculine behaviour at the expense of women, as it would make boys less likely to lash out and repeat learned behaviour. This is the work of years: it requires social and emotional education from primary until further education.

Additionally, in secondary schools, explaining the ways in which men can make women feel safer when in public – such as not overtaking or approaching a woman from behind at night – could also prevent inadvertently threatening behaviour.'
