Ending violence against women (VAW) requires the collaboration of all community members. There is a growing awareness that men, in partnership with women, can play a significant role in ending violence against women.

This training resource was developed for use in Arab countries in order to teach the knowledge, attitudes, and skills needed to promote gender equality and to prevent violence against women through the effective engagement of men. It explores the concepts surrounding VAW, what factors are involved, and the consequences. It presents case studies, tips, and lessons learned, drawn from different experiences and from programmes that work with men as partners in VAW prevention.

The primary audience for this document will be community workers and practitioners working in the Middle East and Northern Africa Region who are involved in working to prevent violence against women, particularly through the engagement of men.
