Annual report 2017
2017 was truly a breakthrough year. The stories from the revolutionary movement #metoo got under our skin and many men had a chance to absorb, reflect and do some soul-searching about themselves and their actions. Also, in Sweden, a lot of men wanted to do something about it. MÄN had to rise to the challenge of harnessing and facilitating that change. We were able to appear in media debates and showcase our work of engaging men and boys, which in turn led to many getting in touch with us and wanting to do something immediately. The results speak for themselves: We tripled our membership numbers, six new local groups started and during the year we got over 6500 new followers on our social media platforms! Read more about this, and our other ongoing initiativ, in Sweden and the world, in our annual report.
Annual Report 2016
Our Annual Report 2016 (English version) gives an overview of MÄN’s activities in 2016. We networked internationally from Sarajevo to Vancouver, set up more fathers’ groups in Belarus and worked to prevent men’s violence in Russia. Back home, our political lobbying work paid off, the Killfrågor chat hit new records and our local members reached out to school students. On top of that, our secretariat continued expanding and we rebranded with a new website, new graphic profile and a bold, shorter name: MÄN.
Paper: Men, Masculinities and Climate Change
“Men, Masculinities and Climate Change” is a discussion paper written in collaboration between MÄN and our partner organisations Promundo, Sonke Gender Justice, Centre ANNA and the MenEngage Global Alliance. It analyses masculinity in patriarchal systems, to illustrate how men and boys’ multiple roles perpetuate environmental degradation. The paper lists suggestions on how men, women and people of all genders can work together on climate change. When we see the link between masculinity and the environment, we are one step closer to creating an ecologically sustainable society for future generations.
Report: State of the World’s Fathers
“State of the World’s Fathers” is an advocacy report published in 2015 by MenCare. It provides a global overview of the state of men’s contributions to parenting and caregiving. Focus areas are sharing unpaid care work, violence prevention, child development and child health. The report is based on data from hundreds of international studies. It includes policy recommendations to governments, employers and individuals.
In 2017 a new report was launched, following up on the previous State of the World´s Fathers. The 2017 State of the World’s Fathers: Time for Action report lays out a bold agenda for men and boys doing fully 50 percent of the world’s unpaid care work.
