MenEngage Alliance Policy Brief: “Accelerating efforts to end VAW: Engaging men and boys in preventing and responding to violence against all women and girls”

The 35th session of the Human Rights council (6-23 June 2017) will negotiate a resolution on “Accelerating efforts to end VAW: Engaging men and boys in preventing and responding to violence against all women and girls”. This is a fantastic opportunity to strengthen governments’ commitment to engaging men and boys for gender equality, and has the potential to be the first binding international legal instrument on the Alliance’s core-issues.

We have collectively developed this policy brief for the occasion, which outlines the Alliance’s position on engaging men and boys in preventing and responding to violence against women and girls, some promising strategies and resources and our call to action.
