Defying gender roles is a grassroots group formed by friends (men and women) convinced about the need to act purposefully in making visible alternative gender roles and to contribute in deconstructing harmful traditional gender roles attributed to men (and women) in society. They aim to empower men to question what it means to be a man today and to reflect on how prevailing gender roles inform our actions and affect our lives. Also, they seek to engage women actively in this conversation, as gender equality is about recognizing how men and women experience life differently and take actions that allow them both to fully exercise their rights and live the life they wish to live.
Defying Gender Roles aims to create change at the individual level as a way to affect society.
