This Week's Voices: "Something is wrong with our mentality as men"
March 23, 2012
By The IRC
IRC president George Rupp (back row, left) and other members of the IRC Commission on Domestic Violence meet with representatives of SOAP, or Servants Of All Prayer in Monrovia, Liberia. SOAP is an IRC partner focused on engaging spiritual leaders from throughout Liberia in ending violence against women.
In Liberia, changing men's attitudes toward women to help end domestic violence ... plus other notable quotes touching on the International Rescue Committee's work around the world:
“Something is wrong with our mentality as men and we have to change.”
“Before I had this well, it was hard. I had no access to safe water."
"This is not the classic refugee scenario, where those in need are clustered together in camps. Here, they are spread out in both urban and rural areas. Simply finding them will be challenging, and given their fear of retribution, persuading them to register them for support may be difficult."
