Video: Making gender equality work for men

Is achieving gender equality a battle to be fought by women, for women? No. (The hint is in the word ‘equality’.)

Ben Acheson

ARE THE GENDER roles and macho stereotypes that we are socialised into hurting us? What does it mean when people say ‘be a man’? Are we really groomed to believe that dominant behaviour towards women is part of being a man?

Here, Ben Acheson argues that not enough men speak up and challenge the existing gender order – because gender equality is not simply a battle to be fought by women.
