Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Rwanda and UN Women officially launched the Gender Cafés

UN Women and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung Rwanda officially launches the 'Gender Cafes' programs Under the theme of 'Positive Masculinity' in a bid to stimulate participants to reflect on the concept and how to do it. The first edition of the "Gender Cafes" took place on Wednesday 23rd October 2019 from 3 to 6 pm at Park Inn by Radisson.

 

The Gender Cafes aim at achieving the following:

  • Engage various actors on real-life gender issues and stimulate dialogue and debate
  • Introduce the latest research, emerging theory, and innovative tools and techniques that can be applied to positive masculinity in our communities.
  • Spark new ideas, new theories and social change strategies, and new networks that can lead to more impactful research, new forms of advocacy, the dissemination of innovative and effective practices, and to raise the profile of gender in Rwanda and beyond.
  • Creating a dynamic space for women and men to self-reflect, analyze and then voice their concerns while fostering a spontaneous dialogue where the conversation is controlled as much as possible by the presenter.

Gender Equality is gaining increased attention in societies, but progressing in various sectors, historical and emerging forms of gender-based discrimination.

Widely shared, hegemonic cultural beliefs about gender and their impact on social relations.
