Description :

The International Men and Gender Equality Survey (IMAGES), created and coordinated by Promundo and the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW), is one of the most comprehensive studies ever on men's practices and attitudes as they relate to gender norms, attitudes toward gender equality policies, household dynamics including caregiving and men's involvement as fathers, intimate partner violence, health and economic stress. The data provide insights on men's use of violence against partners, participation in caregiving and men's reactions to the global gender equality agenda, among other themes. The survey is carried out together with qualitative research to map masculinities, contextualize the survey results and provide detailed life histories that illuminate quantitative key findings. In the case of conflict and post-conflict settings, the IMAGES questionnaire includes additional questions on the effects of conflict and displacement on gender relations.
