I hope I don’t sound controversial, I have been reading through a lot of publication on gender and legal approach to gender based violence and how biased the approach is. @marenabrinkhurst @abigailmoy @Purity_Wadegu @Lore Did you know that one out of 10 men in Kenya has been physically or sexually assaulted by the wife o[r partner?] But the challenge is that in Kenya the intervention and interpretation of gender based violence or even gender is biased on women and the girl child.
Did you also know that research has found that neglect of the boy child has lead to alcoholism in many parts of Kenya [especially in central Kenya?]
I could list as many examples but for now I shall leave it at these two examples. This brings me to my point, What interventions should we take to include the boy child in the discourse on gender? Should we do more empowerment to the boy child? Is there best practices in other countries that @abigailmoy you could share with us that I and purity can discuss on the radio show that we host every weekend at Pamoja fm?@Purity_Wadegu hosting the radio Uhaki show
