Living as a First Man Standing

‘Living as a First Man Standing’ is a resource developed by Restored.


When Restored launched First Man Standing in June 2011, men were challenged to:

  1. Respect all women everywhere and demonstrate love and support for women and children in their family.
  2. Challenge other men by speaking out to their friends and colleagues about ending violence and negative attitudes towards women.
  3. Join the cause and make a personal pledge never to commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women.

‘Living as a First Man Standing is a practical resource to help men live out these challenges. The resource consists of separate sections for some of the many roles that men fulfil. Each one has several suggestions for action that can be taken to build good relationships and model love and respect.
