Domestic violence tops the list as the most common crime in the country and also the least reported. Women are more often the victims and the ones trying to stop it.
Experts say men are often uncomfortable standing up for women's rights. Tallahassee's Refuge House hosted a seminar to discuss the important role men can play in ending domestic and sexual violence.
Meg Baldwin says together men and women have the power to put a stop to it.
"I'd like men to know that there are other men out here in the community and in our country who are dedicating their lives to ending violence against women, to creating new role models for men that cherish love and that promote the success and well being of women."
The Refuge House wants the community to know help is available.
