A Sharing Meeting - Comparative Research on Public Policies Related to Men, Masculinities and Gender

There is an increasing understanding around the world that reaching a status of gender equality will require both women’s empowerment and involvement of men. The Centre for Health and Social Justice (CHSJ) and SAHAYOG have collaborated on a study to understand the spaces and provisions for including and addressing men within a gendered policy framework in India. For this purpose, a set of five recent policy instruments were reviewed that include:
National Population Policy ( 2000) ( and RCH II)
 • National Policy for Empowerment of Women, 2001
 • National Youth Policy, 2003
 • National Rural Employment Guarantee Act, 2005
 • The Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005

To share the preliminary findings of the study and to take feedback from stake- holders and experts on the relevance of the process a sharing event was organized on 17th March 2008 at India International Centre (IIC), New Delhi.
