The Sociological Study of Masculinities in Belarus

Executive Summary

The study of masculinities in Belarus was undertaken in Belarus in spring 2020 within the project “Promoting gender equality in Belarus by engaging men and young boys”, which aims to enhance the quality of life for men and young people by questioning harmful gender stereotypes and developing self care techniques among men.

The ambitious sociological study put forward the following goals: study masculinity through the eyes of Belarusian men, study their attitude toward the new models of masculinity geared toward self-care and self-realization, study social factors affecting the physiological and mental health for men, study the feasibility of creating a specialized counselling service for men aiming at fostering the culture of discussing issues, emotions and feelings among men and young people.

The study of Belarusian masculinities combined two stages: 726 respondents for the online survey (sample structure reflective of the Belarusian male population in age and place of residence) and three focus groups with male Minsk residents in the age group 18-50.
