Gender equality is men´s business too
Boys, teenagers and young men play an important role in overcoming gender violence and discrimination. Men still have power at many levels and so have the opportunity to promote changes in places and structures where women have not yet been able to access and participate. Working with women of all ages to challenge and reduce inequality is essential, but insufficient. Policies and programmes will transform gender relationships if they also help boys and men face up to unequal power relations and if we work with them as allies in achieving social equality and gender justice. A number of young people talk about their experiences.
