Mobilising men and boys for gender equality: “Barbershop event” during PACE spring session (Thursday 26 April 2018)

The Barbershop event aims at engaging in a discussion on how men can join women in advancing gender equality and combating sexism. Participants will be asked to recognise, explore, and challenge harmful gender stereotypes - including those specific to manhood and masculinity - which prevent us from achieving gender equality.

The event will take place from 1 to 2 pm in Room 5 of the Palais. See programme
