This is a free, intensive, five-day course run at the University of Pretoria main campus, which seeks to expand the knowledge of individuals and organisations working on engaging men and boys towards gender equality within a feminist framework.
Participants will debate the ideological and political implications of a gender transformation approach where engaging men and boys is key. The course seeks to strengthen existing work involving men and boys in the prevention and response to gender-based violence, sexual and reproductive health and rights, HIV and AIDS, parenthood and other issues pertaining to gender equality.
The course will run from Monday 4 to Friday 8 August, 2014.
