A growing body of literature suggests that gender inequality and violence work in tandem with other forms of oppression. In the area of gender inequality, rigid gender/sexuality stereotypes and expectations can have negative consequences for men and boys, as they do for women, girls, transgender and two-spirit peoples. This toolkit explains how AMN has approached this work through an intersectional lens to uncover strategies that engage organizations and communities to work against inequities in their various forms.
AMN has participated in an ongoing dialogue with various organizations and groups providing healthy relationships support to men throughout Alberta. The information contained in these toolkits is based on what we have learned from these groups along with insights from the Alberta Men’s Survey.
A toolkit for service providers to connect with people on the topic of masculinities from a variety of perspectives.
Men’s Action Network Calgary (MAN-C) developed this consensus decision-making protocol through our organizing work with men on healthy relationships and violence prevention. The Protocol is based on western social justice activism, Baha’i teachings and Indigenous-centered teachings. A few members created the Protocol and shared with members of MAN-C and later, Alberta Men’s Network for feedback and endorsement. We hope that this will be a useful resource for anyone involved in social justice organizing.
