Engendering Men - A Collaborative Review of Evidence on Men and Boys in Social Change and Gender Equality
‘Engendering Men: Evidence on Routes to Gender Equality’ (EMERGE) is a two-year project to build an open repository of accessible evidence and lessons for working with boys and men to promote gender equality. A consortium of the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Promundo-US and Sonke Gender Justice collaborates in gathering, reviewing, synthesising and disseminating evidence for improved learning and policy. This evidence summary highlights lessons from a major literature review of evidence on men and boys in relation to social change and gender equality. The full report is planned for electronic publication as an open-access Evidence Report on the project website (http://menandboys.ids.ac.uk/). The supporting evidence across nine themes, as well as the methods employed in the desk-based literature review, is described in detail in the full report.
