The Masculinities Project
This project, which is conducted in person on the Clayton campus, engages men and gender-diverse students in the prevention of gender-based violence (GBV).
The project aims to
– improve understanding of the role of men and gender-diverse people in GBV prevention and gender equality
– give students the opportunity to learn practical methods to challenge stereotypical constructions of masculinity and femininity
– provide a safe and supportive environment for men and gender-diverse students to talk about masculinity, discuss societal attitudes and expectations and explore ways to engage in healthier, non-conforming masculinities
– recognise and encourage gender-equitable attitudes of men and gender-diverse students
– challenge dominant forms and patterns of masculinity that drive gender-based violence.
