Masculinity and Gender Based Violence in Rwanda: experience and perceptions of men and women

Rwanda Men’s Resource Centre (RWAMREC) in collaboration with the Rwanda Men Engage Network shares this report which shows the results of the first national household survey ever done in Rwanda on perceptions about masculinity and GBV. The study, conducted from January 2010 to June 2010, examined the roots of GBV in relation to perceptions about masculinity within Rwandan society. This quantitative and qualitative research explored the experiences and opinions of men and women with relativity to how men are supposed to behave according to the socio-cultural norms and values in Rwanda.
