Jens van Tricht
Founder and managing director

I am an Emancipator because I am committed to making the world a better place by making boys and men part of the solution to a variety of problems.

Since 1990, I have been involved in what is now called men’s emancipation; involving boys and men in a just society by promoting equitable gender relations. I studied Women’s Studies at the UvA and specialised in men and masculinity – academically, personally, in activism and professionally. I am convinced that everyone has something to gain from a broadening of the prevailing views on masculinity. Read more about me at
