MEN FIND ROLE IN PROMOTION OF WOMEN?S RIGHTS
Highlighting positive role of men for promotion of women’s rights, the experts at a research launch have emphasised on understanding the notions of masculinity to change men’s behaviour towards women. The experts had gathered at the joint research launch on “Locating Men in Women Rights Activism” jointly organised by Rozan and Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI) on Monday.
The seminar sought to discuss involvement of men in gender activism and issues related to women’s rights. The study captures stories of five men who took affirmative actions against sexual violence against men, women and transgender persons in the context of Pakistan. Sadia Sharif from SDPI moderated the proceedings while Safillulah Khan from Rozan explained research methodology with the participants.
