Emancipator works towards changing the social norms for men and masculinity. In order to achieve gender equality, men also need to change. Men’s emancipation is about the contributions of men to the emancipation of women and about the liberation of men from traditional masculinity.
Traditional masculinity standards cause problems for both men themselves and for others and the world. All kinds of personal and social problems can be traced back to strict ideas about what it means to be a man: from the division of labour and care, fatherhood, education and relationships, to sexuality, violence, diversity and physical and mental health.
In the project ‘Handelingsperspectief’ (Action Perspective) sources have been collected and handouts have been written for professionals. This information can be found by theme.
