Advocacy


From promoting paid parental leave to raising awareness of the harmful effects of corporal punishment, our advocacy efforts aim to target and change policies of inequality. MenCare provides call-to-action platforms to guide partners in taking on local, national, and international advocacy efforts.

  • Ending Corporal Punishment is an advocacy initiative targeted at institutions and policymakers to enact policies that ban corporal punishment as a way to discipline children and adolescents, focusing instead on the use of positive, nonviolent child-rearing skills.
  • The MenCare Parental Leave Platform presents 10 ways to leave gender inequality behind and give our children the care they need by providing paid leave for parents.
  • State of the World’s Fathers (SOWF) is the first report of its kind. It provides key global data on fatherhood and defines a global advocacy agenda for involving men and boys as part of the solution to achieve gender equality.
