Ladies and gentle men: boys and men in India need a new meaning for masculine

Organisation: USAID, Dasra, Kiawah Trust, Piramal Foundation Year: 2015

Developed by Dasra, this report examines a variety of approaches for engaging men and boys to prevent violence against women and girls in India. Among other things, it looks at the use of role models, youth-led school campaigns, and the value of connecting women and girls’ organisations with men and boys’ organisations.

The report identifies areas where men and boys could be more actively involved, including the family, the community and the media. Finally, it calls on donors to fund programmes that engage men and boys across different sectors.
