The Cambodian Men’s Network (CMN) aims to encourage men to work together to eliminate violence against women and promote gender justice and to be good role models for their peers and sons. CMN works to strengthen the network of men throughout the country; mobilize the network to hold campaigns to eliminate violence against women; enable men through activism to understand that violence against women is a men’s problem and men must address the problem of violence themselves; and advocate and lobby for adoption and implementation of laws that protect women from all forms of violence.
