Accountability work with men and boys

Moving beyond the system of gender roles that limits us and promotes inequality is a great challenge for many anti-violence programs. While doing the work of engaging men and boys, it is important to be mindful of limitations and challenges posed by social systems of male privilege. These resources discuss the concept of male privilege, how to challenge it, and critical questions for reflection. Since many leaders in anti-violence organizations are women, we also provide information on honoring female leadership in our work.
