DareGender is Danish volunteer-based organisation that engages boys and men in promoting gender equality. DareGender’s work is focused on mental well-being, violence prevention and redefining masculinities.
We collaborate with researchers, companies and civil society organisations to develop new initiatives and methods. We are a part of the Global MenEngage Alliance, and collaborate with several Nordic and European organisations. We engage in this work because we believe that the road to a more equal world and equality between all genders requires strong interdisciplinary collaboration, both locally and globally.
Our activities include preventive initiatives that offer constructive digital and physical communities, as well as nature-based men’s groups in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Aalborg and Odense. We also offer workshops for companies and educational institutions, and we continuously develop new campaigns and events to further our agenda.
DareGender is a member-based organisation with two volunteer working groups, one in Copenhagen and one in Aarhus. In DareGender we are always interested in new collaborations, and we always have space for new volunteers.
DareGender means that we dare to speak about and challenge the understandings of gender that we see and experience all around us. We are especially focused on men and masculinity, and we engage men in our work to nuance and break down negative and narrow understandings and stereotypes of masculinity.
