Review:

"Around the world, there is an explosion of interest in how we can effectively address and involve men and boys in promoting gender equality and challenging gender-based violence. As this fine collection attests, Oxfam GB is one of the organizations at the forefront of these efforts."--Michael Kaufman

"Building gender justice requires women's and men's shared commitment and involvement. This cutting-edge collection of international case studies provides an invaluable account of the benefits, and challenges, of working with men to foster gender equality."--Dr. Michael Flood

Synopsis:

Why is it important to include men in gender equality and anti-poverty work? What works with men in practice? What is the impact of including men in gender analysis and action? How should organisations develop work with men? Oxfam GB's 'Gender Equality and Men (GEM) project' has been seeking since 2002 to address men and boys more fully in the organisation's gender work through regional workshops, internal training, piloting new approaches, and policy and practice change. This book draws upon conclusions from this project, and shares knowledge about, and experience of, work with men on gender equality in programmes run by Oxfam GB and other organisations. It also explores how work with men can be developed to promote broader gender equality and poverty reduction strategies, and to encourage a more active engagement with men through gender programming.

This collection brings together fourteen articles by development practitioners and researchers worldwide and addresses a range of key issues, including: the value of including men in gender equality and anti-poverty work; the difficulties that are likely to arise - both for men and women - and how they can they be overcome; practical evidence from different spheres (eg in relation to sustainable livelihoods, gender-based violence, sexual and reproductive health); lessons regarding the impact of including men in gender analysis and action; future strategies and directions for development organisations and practitioners.
