The Other Side of the Gender Equation: Gender Issues for Men in the Europe and Eurasia Region

While a great deal of information and analysis is available on the major gender issues women in the Europe and Eurasia region face, very little has been written about gender issues as they impact men. The purpose of this report is to help fill that gap. This report discusses: (a) the male role and expectations of men in the region, including major geographic, religious, and ethnic differences; (b) current threats to social definitions of masculinity and the male role, and men's responses to these threats; (c) major gender issues facing men in the region; and (d) activities that USAID could implement that would address these issues either as stand-alone programming or as a component of programs across multiple sectors.
