Lab Area: Girls' Education & Empowerment

Categories: Community Engagement, Gender Norms and Male Engagement

Meaningful engagement with men and boys is increasingly recognized as critical to advancing gender equality and equity. It is necessary not only for women’s empowerment, but also to transform the social and gender norms that reinforce patriarchy and inequality and harm both women and men. This report details approaches, challenges, and best practices for working with men to achieve gender equity in six sectors: violence against women and girls, health, economic empowerment, care work and fatherhood, land rights and agriculture, and political participation.
