Theme III: Stereotypical norms of masculinity – a cause of violence


Workshop host: National Gender Equality Agency, Sweden in cooperation with Nordic Council of Ministers
To prevent sexual harassment and violence against women and girls, actions to reach boys and young men must be taken on an early stage. Boys and young men need knowledge and an active role in preventing gender based violence. This workshop presents methods and programs developed in Nordic countries to prevent gender based violence focusing on boys and young men. Prevention of honour-related violence will also be raised.
