The International Men and Gender Equality Survey (IMAGES) is the largest multi-country study of its kind in the Middle East and North Africa. So what does it mean to be a man in Lebanon in 2017 and beyond – and what impact does masculinity have on the lives of women and girls, on men themselves, and for gender equality more broadly? To answer this question, Promundo and UN Women, with ABAAD and Connecting Research to Development (CRD), conducted qualitative research and completed surveys with 1,050 men and 1,136 women between the ages of 18 and 59, representing both the Lebanese and Syrian populations living in Lebanon.
