Organisation: CARE Year: 2017

This brief documents CARE’s Tipping Point project and how using tea stalls can help change social norms. It offers tips on how to replicate this approach in your own work.

Personal relationships often reinforce or challenge power imbalances between men and women. Fathers and brothers hold a great deal of power in the lives of adolescent girls in Bangladesh’s Sunamganj district.
