Working with Men & Boys to End Violence Against Women and Girls
Approaches, Challenges, and Lessons
This report reviews the published and grey literature on male engagement strategies for ending violence against women and girls (VAWG) in five sectors from across the Global South. Sectors reviewed include economic growth, trade, and agriculture; education; governance, law enforcement, and justice systems; conflict, post conflict, and humanitarian assistance; and social development. A broad definition of such violence was used. Violence against men and boys, much of which could be considered gender based, was not considered as part of the is review in accordance with stipulated terms of reference. Programs were included in this review on the basis of evaluated impact, lessons learned documentation, and/or innovative program design. The major limitation of this review is that it only considered documentation available in English. Findings from the review are summarized below in relation to the five sectors considered.
