Fathers’ Project

Reducing gender-based violence

Tales of Turning is designing a project which aims to investigate the linkage between masculinity, fathering and gender based violence.

What are the factors which influence the masculinity of young men?

What do fathers pass on to their sons by way of masculine thinking and what do the sons think about it?

What are alternative ways of being a man that are more supportive of women and of peace?

Using a narrative approach we will implement programs to reduce gender based violence in South Africa.
