A Sharing Meeting - Comparative Research on Public Policies Related to Men, Masculinities and Gender
March 17, 2008, New Delhi
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.
