Gender-based violence involves men and women with women usually, but not always, being the victim. It stems from unequal power relationships within families, communities and states. This book is an attempt to encourage donors and programmers to recognize that effective programming must be broad-based and informed by an analysis of gaps and priorities in the target community. The purpose of the manuscript is to improve donor, government, and civil society efforts to prevent and respond to gender-based violence in the west region of Africa (Nigeria). The partners collaborating on this effort recognize that neither human rights nor economic and social development goals can be reached in societies where gender inequality is both an accepted norm and a frequent excuse for interpersonal violence and discrimination. To address this situation, this proposed book promotes implementing activities that confront factors that deny men are also victim of domestic violence.
