The Men and Gender Equality Policy Project (MGEPP)





The Men and Gender Equality Policy Project, coordinated by Promundo and the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW), is a multi-year, multi-country research and advocacy initiative that has been carried out in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Chile, Croatia, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) India, Malawi, Mali, Mexico, Rwanda and South Africa (as of November 2012).

The MGEPP seeks to build the evidence base on how to change public institutions and policies to better foster gender equality and to raise awareness among policymakers and program planners of the need to involve men in health, development and gender equality issues.

Project elements include:

1. Quantitative Research: International Men and Gender Equality Survey (IMAGES) – A quantitative household survey measuring men’s and women’s perceptions and behaviors on themes related to gender equality, carried out with men and women in seven countries in 2009-2010.

2. Qualitative Research: Men Who Care – An in depth, five country, qualitative study of men involved in gender activism and/or non-traditional caregiving roles such as day-care workers.

3. Advocacy and Policy Work: What Men Have to Do with it: Public policies to promote gender equality – A multi-country policy research and analysis on the extent to which men and masculinities are contemplated in existing public policies related to gender equality.
