Regarding to the attempts and imaginations for the solution of male violence, the category of man is mostly discussed only in relation to the problem. However, we do not see/hear enough men themselves in these feminist struggles. For a significant solution, the transformation in need must be realized by responsible agents of that problem. Thus, the first step will be to recognize the problem rather than the solution. In this context, the problematic of this study follows the question of how men relate to male violence as a problem. Accordingly, this research investigates Bianet’s project titled as 52 Weeks 52 Men through critical discourse analysis. In pursuit of an alliance between feminism and men, this research discusses the possibilities of a male subjectivity that can be related to male violence as a problem and can open itself to the other.
