The issue of why it is we always associate violence with men needs to be questioned. Is it true? If so, why and what can be done about it? See my blog on this topic for more information.
We recently posted a blog entitled Gender, Masculinities, and Gang Rape in India on the website of the Gender, Power, and Violence network. This blog as might be imagined, deals with the recent rape of a young woman in Delhi and suggests potential ways to tackle the issue of gender-based violence in India. These are to do with the need to work with Indian men to encourage them to rethink their notions of appropriate masculinity in such a way as to improve their well-being and that of Indian women, including of course to reduce gender-based violence.
