From: Changing gender norms: Transforming Masculinities

Transforming Masculinities is Tearfund’s evidence-based intervention to end sexual and gender-based violence and promote gender-equal societies

This guide enables trained Gender Champions to facilitate community dialogues. These small group discussions are first held in separate men’s and women’s groups and then in a combined session. They cover topics of gender norms and roles, as well as faith-based responses to sexual and gender-based violence.
