The role of men and boys in work towards equality of women and men, 2004

Submitted by: ICWGB Committee

The National Council of Women, recognising the importance of recent discussions in the UN Commission on the Status of Women on the significance of the role of men and boys in work to promote gender equality, urges Her Majesty’s Government: (a) to encourage and support work at home and abroad to promote understanding of the role of men and boys as active participants in work towards equality and recognition of full human rights for women; and  (b) to develop and implement initiatives at all levels within the UK to ensure the fuller recognition by men and boys of the importance of full and equal responsibility of women and men in society, in the home, the community and the workplace.
