Men and Masculinities
Levtov, R. G., Barker, G., Contreras-Urbina, M., Heilman, B., & Verma, R. (2013) Pathways to gender-equitable men: findings from the international men and gender equality survey in eight countries Men and Masculinities,

This article presents findings from the International Men and Gender Equality Survey (IMAGES), which was designed to gather data on men’s attitudes and practices related to gender equality in eight low- and middle-income countries: Brazil, Chile, Mexico, India, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Rwanda. It provides a current picture of men’s attitudes about gender and gender equality, explores the determinants of equitable attitudes, and investigates the associations between equitable attitudes and relationship behaviors. It was found that men report positive, but ambivalent, attitudes toward gender equality, and that education, income, and more equitable practices in men’s childhood homes are associated with men’s more equitable attitudes and practices.
