Project Outline

This project advocates for a new image of modern-day men, different from that of traditional men, so as to rectify gender inequality by addressing mental biases, systems, and social practices based on traditional roles for men and women that have been widely accepted in Japan, East Asia and Southeast Asia. Based on comparative research conducted in various countries, the project seeks to implement effective projects targeting men in line with local conditions and accordingly recommend policies.
