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 Morocco 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 in Morocco, Promundo and UN Women, with Association Migration Internationale (AMI) and independent researchers, conducted qualitative research and surveyed 1,200 men and 1,200 women between the ages of 18 and 59 from seven provinces and prefectures within the Rabat-Salé-Kénitra region.
