Society’s understanding of masculinity is changing, redefining culture and challenging archaic and long held beliefs. Join the conversation, and let’s promote gender justice and prevent violence, by engaging men and boys in partnership with women, girls, and individuals of all gender identities. I believe that engaging and including men and boys to transform harmful gender norms and unequal power dynamics is a critical part of the solution to achieving gender equality.
For us to empower women and girls, men and boys must see themselves as allies in the process. Men and boys also benefit when harmful norms are challenged.
“Gender equality is more than a goal in itself. It is a precondition for meeting the challenge of reducing poverty, promoting sustainable development and building good governance”
