Global Symposium Engaging Men and Boys in Achieving Gender Equality Report

The theme of the first Global Symposium on Engaging Men and Boys in Gender Equality was: “Scaling up Work with Men and Boys in Gender Equality”. The Symposium emerged from the hundreds of civil society and govern- mental programs around the world that are al- ready working to engage men and boys in preventing violence against women and girls in a number of areas: sexual and reproductive health and rights; HIV/AIDS prevention and mitigation; fatherhood and caregiving; ending homophobia; and maternal and child health.

This report is a summary of the events of the symposium.
