CARE's Research on Men and Boys

Learning Initiative

CARE is committed to promoting gender equality as a cornerstone for lasting change, reducing poverty, and achieving social justice. Supporting gender equality requires not only a commitment to supporting the empowerment of women and girls, but also engaging men and boys as allies in this effort.

Men and Gender Equality

CARE’s work on the International Men and Gender Equality Survey (IMAGES) study and with Partners 4 Prevention has provided critical insights into men and masculinities in Mali, Sri Lanka, and Croatia.

Masculinities Study

In Bangladesh, CARE comissioned a study on masculinities in Bangladesh as part of the Food Security in the Ultra Poor (FSUP) program to work with men and boys to help increase women's mobility and access to resources. 

Costs of Violence Against Women

The innovative project implemented by CARE with funding from USAID sought to highlight the costs and consequences of domestic violence.

Men Engage

CARE is also a member of the steering committee of MenEngage—a consortium of NGOs that work to create gender equality to benefit everyone in society.

Journeys of Transformation

In Rwanda, CARE is working with men and boys to increase support for women's rights, access to finance, and food security in the household. 

CARE's Research on Men and Boys

CARE partners with different research organizations around the globe to study the cutting edge of how to work with men and boys, and why it matters. Our research provides useful tools for CARE and our partners to improve our programming and advocacy around the world.
