MOST Club 2009-10 Evaluation

Men Can Stop Rape's 2009-2010 evaluation results provide some illuminating quantitative data about the effect of the Men of Strength (MOST) Clubs. The results show that the MOST Club participants made statistically significant changes during the program year. After one year in a MOST Club, participants were more likely to:

  • Disagree with statements supporting the dominant story of masculinity and pro-harassment beliefs
  • Intervene in situations when a girl is being touched inappropriately by male peers
  • Intervene when a male peer was being verbally harassed or threatened with physical violence by another male peer

The MOST Club participants also reported a decrease in their own incidents of harassment and bullying behaviors, as well as an increased belief that they could play a role in reducing violence in their schools and communities.
