The problem of violence against women might seem insurmountable. But focusing on education about misogyny may provide a place to start. In particular, it is important to help young people understand what misogyny is, how it affects both women and men, and how it can lead to violence.

Our research on moral education, sex education and violence against women can help spell out the link between misogyny and violence, and how education can address these issues.
