Start With Respect is a new resource from White Ribbon New Zealand. It was developed to prevent sexual violence and promote positive male behavior by providing tips for young men on how to start a respectful relationship with women.

In simple terms, Start with Respect shares 10 concrete tips for engaging with women in a respectful, responsible manner. Tips range from values and actions around interpersonal issues, such as consent and honest, healthy communication to upstander behaviors, like calling out a friend or intervening with street harassment.
