Bystander action is often promoted as an effective way of engaging non-violent men in challenging violence against women in their peer groups and communities. This paper explains the origins and rationale for bystander interventions, the characteristics of successful bystander programs in Australia and overseas, and the challenges for implementation and evaluation. While there are some unresolved challenges and issues in their implementation, bystander approaches represent a promising complementary approach to progressing sexual violence prevention.
