How to bring up boys?

We just saw Provoked. Its a movie which every family must see. The last message through the main protagonist - "If every mother brings up her boys in manner that they learn to respect women, the world would never see a woman battered or abused".

Why only mothers? Its the duty of the father as well to bring up his sons in a sensitive manner. Its the duty of the extended family and also the schooling system. Its there that the children spend much of their 'most impressionable' years. Anyways...its a great film where no frame is wasted.
