Forum of real men are gathered men from the world of politics, journalism, music, film, sports and other areas, who fight against women violence in Croatia. Forum of real men was established on 8th March of 2012 by the occasion of International Women’s Day. In the period to 25th November and marking the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, we have continuously urged celebrities to join the Forum and with their personal example give support to model of real man, one who is committed to creating a non-violent society, especially against violence on women. The campaign has noticed very positive reviews and messages of support, which is why the campaign is conducted even today…

For years women have been pioneers in the prevention and fight against violence, but today more and more men joined also gives support to this movement. Men, as fathers, friends, decision makers, leaders play an important role in combating violence against women and their involvement suggests that this problem does not concern only women, but the whole society. They represent a positive role model and example of masculinity for young men and boys.

There is one universal truth, applicable to all countries, cultures and communities: violence against women is never acceptable, never excusable, never tolerable.
