Changing Inequitable Gender NormsJune 23, 2020 1:13 pm Leave your thoughts
While working with young people MAMTA understood the significant concerns which relate to sexual and reproductive health issues, and are unarticulated and un-addressed due to lack of information and services, parental/community support and understanding.. MAMTA’s interventions promote equitable norms, and has lead to significant reductions in HIV and STI risks among the marginalized and vulnerable adolescent communities in India. In our experience talking about inequitable gender norms in rural settings, especially which define masculinity is crucial as a prevention strategy. Group education interventions which MAMTA promotes, through its interventions influence young men’s and community gatekeepers’ attitudes towards progressive gender roles.
