In many part of the world, the female status are far below that of their male counterparts and are often subjugated through clandestine practices and norms. At the core of this is the cultural underpinning of a patriarchal society where male dominance and superiority is displayed both in public and private life. Unequal power relation between the sexes have also created and exacerbated violence against women which manifest in various shades. While cultural norms are difficult to change directly, case studies from other contexts and regions have proven that education and enlightenment can be used to influence negative part of culture. Project Men for Equality (M4E) is targeted at eroding the cultural norms about the status of women in Nigerian society through advocacy and education to men in informal networks, who are mostly the custodians of these traditions. It is strongly believed that as they get enlightened, they will be able to work more towards the achievement of an equitable society.
