Through 30 years of gender-transformative work with a focus on men, masculinities and violence, we have developed projects in the key areas of preventing violence, advancing equal parenthood, challenging stereotypical norms, supporting young men and connecting gender and the environment. We have developed methods specifically for children and youth, men of all ages and fathers. We carry out public campaigns as well as local activities around Sweden – through members and activists and with professional staff. MÄN offers trainings and capacity building support to professionals, organisations, institutions and individuals, and strives to be at the forefront of method and knowledge development within this sphere of work and expertise.
In our violence prevention work, we use methods that challenge stereotypical assumptions about gender because we know they are more effective for promoting behavioural change.
