Boys Meet Girls' Rights: Bolivian Adolescent Males' Claims of Commitment to Gender Equality
Gervais, Christine
Children & Society, v26 n5 p356-367 Sep 2012
This article describes a qualitative study exploring the effects of community-based human rights and pro-equality education on Bolivian adolescent boys. By privileging the boys' own voices, the study examines how the boys' sense of solidarity toward others, derived from the citizenship duties and collegiality emphasised in non-governmental workshops, impacted their commitment to gender equality. Research implications include the importance of educating young males on females' rights and listening to the boys' views on the resulting progress and remaining challenges regarding the attainment of sustainable gender equality in social spheres and public policies.
