The quantitative study, "Broadening gender: Why masculinities matter – a study on attitudes, practices and gender-based violence in four districts in Sri Lanka" was conducted by CARE International Sri Lanka, under its EMERGE project (Empowering Men to Engage and Redefine Gender Equality) and launched in April 2013. The study was conducted from 2012 to 2013, and was supported by Partners for Prevention. The report explores men’s knowledge, practices and social attitudes towards gender and gender-based violence in four sites across Sri Lanka. The survey provides baseline indicators for CARE programming, as well as a wealth of information on gendered attitudes norms, and practices of women and men that can be applied to enhance gender-based violence prevention, health, youth and empowerment interventions.
