Men's Experiences of Violence against Women in Indonesia: and How We Can Begin to Prevent It
The quantitative survey on men’s experiences of violence against women in Indonesia was conducted between October and December of 2012 by the Rifka Annisa Women’s Crisis Centre in collaboration with UN Women and Partners for Prevention. The summary, “Men’s Experiences of Violence against Women in Indonesia” presents statistics on the experiences of 2,577 men with respect to violence against women, as well as in their own lives. They were a representative sample of three sites: Jakarta, Jayapura and Purworejo. The study makes recommendations on addressing violence, substance abuse and promoting non-violent masculinities, and provides guidance in creating programs to support gender equality and respect for gender differences.
