  • Synopsis
    Working with men on gender equality is essential to challenge patriarchal constraints that men experience in their own lives. Authors here share experience of working with men to question traditional ideas about masculinity. Men rejecting these norms are not only happier, but are also critical allies with women in struggles for gender equality. Feminist work by men, with men, is a critical part of gender-transformative development.

    ‘This is an extremely interesting and timely book, given the pressing need to ensure the realisation of substantive gender equality as a cornerstone of social justice and sustainable development. Drawing on diverse examples from initiatives around the world, the book highlights both the potential for and importance, or indeed necessity, of involving men and boys, alongside women and girls, in addressing gender inequalities and promoting and ultimately achieving gender equality, for the good of all.’
