Social Norms Change

     Norms are about what is expected and assumed--what is 'normal.' If a campus social group has a norm around being entitled to sex if you pay for the date--that's a norm that contributes to sexual violence.
     Social norms change is at the root of all successful prevention programs. These movements go beyond mere education or awareness efforts, but deeper to change community beliefs and expectations.
