"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
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!👏👏
