This publication is the fruit of a study on men and gender equality, conducted in Rabat-Salé-Kénitra (Morocco) in 2016, as part of the "Men and Women for Gender Equality" program, implemented by UN Women and supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA). This initiative aims to better understand the root causes of gender inequality in four MENA countries, including Morocco. The quantitative study on Rabat-Salé-Kenitra is complemented by a qualitative survey-focus group discussions and in-depth individual interviews aimed at questioning gender-equitable attitudes and practices, especially in private life and public life of individuals. It explored the perceptions of gender relations in order to identify the factors determining egalitarian opinions, the empowering factors for women, and men’s perceptions of masculinities.
