Men in focus practice guide

This practice guide from Our Watch is designed to support people to address masculinities and work with men in the prevention of men’s violence against women.

Building on the Our Watch Men in focus evidence review, this practice guide outlines the long-term, collective, and intersectional approach needed to dismantle and transform the norms, structures and practices that reinforce gender inequality and lead to men’s violence against women.

It offers practical strategies on engaging with men and boys on masculinities, such focusing on building empathy and motivation and fostering self-awareness.

The guide will assist you to:

  • Build rapport with men to challenge social norms, structures and practices that underpin gender inequality and drive men’s violence against women
  • Address gender inequality and the gendered drivers of violence
  • Develop and deliver prevention initiatives.

All men have a role to play in changing our society to make it safer and more equal, and we believe our new guide will help to enact this change.
