Tony Porter’s highly anticipated book Breaking Out of the Man Box boldly exposes the connection between men and the quest to end violence against women and girls. Porter provides an honest and transformative experience for men and creates a world where men and boys are loving and respectful and women and girls are valued and safe.
As the co-founder of A CALL TO MEN, Porter is internationally recognized for his efforts to prevent violence against women while promoting a healthy, respectful manhood. He is a leading voice on male socialization, the intersection of masculinity and violence against women, and healthy, respectful manhood. Porter’s 2010 TED Talk has been named by GQ Magazine as one of the “Top 10 TED Talks Every Man Should See.”
Porter is an adviser to the National Football League, National Basketball Association, National Hockey League and Major League Baseball, providing policy consultation, working extensively with player engagement, and facilitating violence prevention and healthy manhood training.
Now, in Breaking Out of the Man Box, Porter’s message is directed at all men.
