"Rutgers knows it's crucial to engage men for gender justice, but also that only using this approach is binary & heteronormative. Therefore, we also focus on sexual & gender diversity to ensure the rights of marginalized groups are respected & fulfilled."

-@reyDP from @RutgersID

➡️@renugolwalkar says to effectively engage men & boys, we must frame gender inequality as a societal problem.

"There is not a problem with men & boys that we are trying to fix. The problem is the prevalence of harmful gender norms and power dynamics at every level of society."

Nick Danforth, a lifelong #SRHR advocate who managed the institute that won Roe v. Wade, outlines two priorities for gender-transformative SRHR programs:

1️⃣ Build local management
2️⃣ Demonstrate engaging men is cost-effective through increased data collection

#UbuntuSymposium

Renu Golwalkar, our Director of Gender, Youth & Social Inclusion, says gender-transformative change cannot be measured through contraception uptake or healthcare usage.

"The process is as important as the end goal. We must challenge existing gender stereotypes & power dynamics."

Why is engaging men important for achieving #GenderEquality?

Participants at our @MenEngage #UbuntuSymposium session say that change is more sustainable when all people are engaged, and that everyone has a stake in achieving gender equality because everyone benefits!👏👏

Contraceptive Sterilization

As we advance into the 21st century, voluntary sterilization continues to be the most prevalent form of contraception worldwide. Reliance on both male and female sterilization has grown substantially since 1980 and is expected to continue to rise in certain countries. The continuing demand for sterilization, its convenience, its minimal side effects, and its long-term contraceptive protection all guarantee that quality sterilization services remain a crucial component of comprehensive family planning services. Contraceptive Sterilization: Global Issues and Trends depicts the current state of contraceptive sterilization. It is the most comprehensive current source of information about the worldwide practice of contraceptive sterilization since the 1985 landmark publication Voluntary Sterilization: An International Fact Book. This new resource, Contraceptive Sterilization, provides the latest in-depth information about female and male sterilization, quality service delivery, sterilization incidence and prevalence, characteristics of sterilization users, laws and policies around the world, key factors influencing the use and outcomes of sterilization, research gaps, and future trends and needs.

The book has received praise from experts in the field. Read the executive summary and key highlights, or download individual chapters via the links below.
