Recognizing that domestic and sexual violence directed against women is a serious social problem that continues to plague America, the National Football League Players Association has joined with A CALL TO MEN, the leading national men's organization dedicated to addressing this problem, to produce Dedicated to Daughters, a book celebrating the unique and indestructible bond between fathers and daughters. In it NFL players and coaches, through inspiring personal accounts, talk about what it means to be a father, and the importance of being a role model for their daughters.

These courageous men of the NFL, men like Donovan McNabb, James Brown, Matt Hasselbeck, Tony Dungy, Jeff Saturday, and many others, volunteered to share their thoughts and opinions on what it means to be a real man in today's society while engaging in thoughtful discussions on the role men play in preventing domestic violence. In so doing they have helped redefine our culture's definition of manhood and shown what it means to be a caring husband, father, and friend. Much like the players, the NFL Players Association and the National Football League hope that those who read the genuine expressions of these influential men will be encouraged to find their own voice, stand up and speak out on this important issue.
