As a network, we are interested in understanding how patriarchal masculinities maintain and deepen injustices. We seek to identify ways of challenging and transforming them. By doing so, we aim to support movements for gender justice, women’s rights, LGBTQI rights, racial justice, climate justice and other intersecting social justice issues.
Members of MenEngage Alliance share a common interest is in understanding and transforming patriarchal masculinites. What are they? How do they work? Where do they show up? In what ways do they affect our communities, relationships, societies, and the world? How can they be dismantled or transformed? By asking these kinds of questions, our work aims to place patriarchy at the center of our thinking and actions on difficult and interconnected challenges in the world.
