The work of Because We Have Daughters® (BWHD) is based on a set of core values. Men Stopping Violence (MSV) uses games and activities that help fathers and daughters connect around those core values and incorporate them in to their relationships. The session also creates a safe environment for fathers to talk to each other about those values and for girls to discuss concerns and needs they might have. Often men tell MSV that it is the first time they have talked to other men about topics such as parenting, sexism, active listening, etc.
MSV provides training to community organizations and other institutions so that they can conduct their own BWHD sessions. This is a two day training that includes a model BWHD session, a detailed workbook, skill building in facilitation and other communication tools, and a template that allows the attendees to design their own BWHD sessions. 5 hours of follow up technical assistance is also included.
