Positive masculinity

Positive masculinity is a way of visualizing and behaving that builds on all the qualities associated with traditional masculinity (strength, courage, determination, perseverance, intelligence), while neglecting its negative aspects, such as aggression, domination and violence, of which women and girls are most often victims.

This attitude invites us to free ourselves from the weight of society's expectations about how to behave and think about our lives. This positive vision of oneself allows you to gain confidence, to discover other facets of oneself, to leave room for empathy. 

In the effort to fight for a better world, men and boys are invited, by mobilizing these qualities, to commit to gender equality, the empowerment and development of women and girls, and against all forms of violence against them.
