Engaging Men to Advance Rights for Everyone

Opening Doors, Growing Allies

Men and boys are key allies in shaping more equitable societies. Rigid concepts about what it means to be a “real man” constrain men and boys. Narrow ideas about manhood may encourage alcohol use, violence and risk-taking. At Abt, we work with men and boys to reframe masculinity and allow men to imagine themselves in a broader range of roles at home, at work and in their communities.
