Workshop Activities: Talking to men about gender, domestic and sexual violence and HIV/AIDS

Sonke Gender Justice Network (2008). Workshop Activities: Talking to men about gender, domestic and sexual violence and HIV/AIDS. Sonke Gender Justice Network: Cape Town, South Africa.

This mini-manual is intended to be a resource for those working with men and boys on issues of citizenship, human rights, gender, health, sexuality and violence. The content of the activities are informed by a commitment to social justice, gender equality and engaged citizen activism. Each activity is interactive and gives people an opportunity to reflect on their own values and experiences. The activities are simple to use and don’t require lots of prior facilitation experience.

These activities are intended to encourage men to reflect on their own attitudes and values about gender, women, domestic and sexual violence, HIV/AIDS, democracy and human rights so that they can take action to prevent domestic and sexual violence, reduce the spread and impact of HIV and AIDS and promote gender equality.
