Alberta Men's Attitudes about Violence Against Women Survey

The Alberta Council of Women's Shelters comissioned Leger to conduct a survey of men's attitudes about violence against women in our province.  Learning about men's attitudes on this issue is important because:
- Men still hold the overwhelming majority of leadership roles and shape policy with key institutions (law enforcement, government, courts, etc.) and their decisions have an impact on the lives of women
- Gaining insight into where men are coming from on this issue helps us all target messaging and resources to help educate and shift attitudes
- Research highlights that men are more receptive to hearing social marketing messaging from other men.  Engaging and supporting men as bystanders who take informed action to role model healthy relationships and educate other men is how we're going to impact change.
