Reflections on men and boys engaging gender work in development
The 2015 Engaging Men and Boys Learning Initiative explored the experiences of men involved in the struggle for gender equality. How did they first get involved? What sustains men and boys’ engagement in this work? How can men better support women and women’s organisations in the fight for gender equality? And how can organisations like CARE support them?
This brief explores the catalysts for male engagement and their experiences in the process of engagement. It highlights the learning from the process, including on economic incentives and social change; working holistically with men and boys as diverse individuals; addressing violence; and linking with other organisations and leaders, including gender equality movements.
