ICRW Says to Stop Violence against Women, Aim National Policies at Men
Date:4/14/2010

promote more equitable relationships. Equally important are programs that engage men who already condemn violence against women to reach out to other men and boys. Programs like these must be complemented by an integrated policy response that encourages, for example, paid paternity leave or engaging men in care giving as well as violence prevention lessons in school curricula.

“Public policy also has a role to play in changing social norms about what it means to be men – particularly in institutions where men often are present, like the workplace, sporting facilities, the school and the military,” Barker said. “Changing the way men think about themselves and women is an essential part of the strategy to ensure women’s right to lives free of violence. We have evidence of what works but we need to scale it up and sustain it.”

Note to Editors:
1. ICRW and partners recently released “What Men Have to Do with It,” a global, comparative policy analysis report that examines how changes in national policies could help achieve gender equality and reduce violence against women. The report answers whether changes in men’s attitudes and behaviors about health, violence and parenting benefit women, children and men. It also explores whether national policies influence men’s behaviors in relation to child rearing, employment and gender-based violence.
