The Making of Sexual Violence: How Does a Boy Grow Up to Commit Rape?

The multi-year, multi-country initiative has gathered household-level data on men’s attitudes and practices related to gender and violence, along with women’s opinions and reports of men’s behavior in 10 countries to date. Within that overarching theme, IMAGES also explores a broad range of issues, such as fatherhood, childhood experiences and men’s health. By understanding men’s attitudes and actions – as well as what influences each – violence prevention advocates will be better able to engage men as key allies in the pursuit of gender equality and nonviolence.
