Mobilising men to stand up against gender inequality

Team-building activity at the Mobilizing Men campaign planning workshop in Nairobi

Around the world, men are being mobilised to stand up against gender inequality.

From taxi drivers in Kenya, to student activists in India and refugees in Uganda, all have pledged to confront gender inequality in their communities.

They're part of a pilot project known as the Mobilising Men Initiative, which is led by the Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex in the United Kingdom and supported by the UN Population Fund (UNFPA).

To learn more about Mobilising Men, Dianne Penn spoke to UNFPA's Leyla Sharafi, a technical specialist on gender issues.
