Podcast: The New Man-ifesto

Historically, men and boys have been in the background in the debate and movements on gender equality. However, there is a growing realization that this needs to change. 

This International Women's Day, to transform ‘men-talities’ and counter gender stereotypes, UNESCO is calling for increased involvement of men and boys to achieve gender equality. 

In a joint podcast for The New Man-ifesto, Director and UNESCO Representative, Eric Falt discusses how popular and harmful notions of masculinity have exacerbated the gendered impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Listen in as he talks about the role of men and boys in challenging the status quo by enumerating the many ways they can be catalyzed towards advancing gender equality.

Whilst thanking the hosts, Eric Falt concludes the discussion saying "Engaging men and boys is key to promoting women’s leadership and for all of us to live free of gender-based violence, including that of gender stereotypes."
