Description:
16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence - DAY 9: Nigeria

‘As a husband and father of three daughters I have to be a positive role model by the way I treat their mother.’ Ben, Nigeria

Ben is a staff member and took part of the Transforming Masculinities workshop in Jos, Nigeria. The five-day workshop addressed some of the cultural and societal norms which create unequal power dynamics between men and women and can lead to gender-based violence. Ben was transformed by the workshop and is now actively speaking out against gender-based violence.

Please pray for more men like Ben to recognise the social norms which do harm to women around the world, and be willing to change their behaviour to reflect more equal relationships.
