Reflections of People on Masculinity: Body Maps and Descriptions Booklet

Under ARC, CCP conducted two body mapping workshops on male norms in Addis Ababa. Body mapping is a tool that has been used for many years by people who want to get a better understanding of themselves, their body and the world they live in. The process often includes painting exercises, drama acting, group discussions and personal reflections.
During the two workshops, participants comprised of university students, federal police and national defense members were able to identify harmful male norms within their society and their impacts on HIV and AIDS. They expressed their thoughts on gender roles, alcohol consumption, healthy and unhealthy relationships, etc.
This booklet is a publication of the body maps and their descriptions created in those workshops. The booklet also has discussion questions and a guide for creating your own body map.
