Violence is preventable
UNDP, UNFPA, UN Women & UNV
regional joint programme for the prevention of violence against women and girls in Asia and the Pacific
The qualitative life history study was conducted in 2011 by UNFPA and UN Women Viet Nam, with support from Partners for Prevention. The study findings point toward the myriad ways in which men's trajectories into gendered beliefs, attitudes and practices are shaped across their lives. From childhood, to work and within the relationship space, the study explored men's perceptions and practices of power and control, as well as more equitable and peaceful norms, in Viet Nam. The findings come directly from men's lived experiences and have significant implications for programmes and policies to work with boys and men, alongside girls and women, to promote more equitable social norms between women and men and prevent violence in the future.
