Grassroots activists, UN organisations, NGOs, civil society members including artists, poets, photographers, film makers, ordinary citizens and most importantly, the youth are all coming together, expressing the need for men to speak up for gender justice.
MenEngage Global Symposium and OBR 2015 have decided to come together in Delhi on a common platform to demonstrate that gender equality can be achieved if men engage with the issue.
