MenEngage Alliance has posted to its YouTube channel a short video of It Takes Two to Tango, a conversation the Alliance organized on March 18 during the 60th session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW60), together with the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF), Breakthrough, the Center for the Study of Men and Masculinities and the Resource Centre for Gender Equality (ABAAD).

Subtitled A Conversation About How to Work Together on a Joint Agenda for Gender Justice with Women’s Organizations and Engaging Men & Boys Field, the event focused on partnership-building between those working in the field of women’s rights and empowerment, and those working with men and boys. Panelists discussed the changing landscape of the field of gender justice and their own experiences with partnership and made recommendations for the formation of a joint agenda. The video, filmed by Valerie Barnes and edited by Kristoffer Hellesmark, captures the conversation’s highlights.
