There are two key resources that are helpful when thinking through developing indicators for monitoring and evaluating behavioural and attitudinal change in men.
The questions on male peer relations from the National Community Attitudes toward Violence against women Survey (NCAS) might also be useful for evaluating healthy masculinity work.
Some example process indicators include:
# of participants in the project
# or % of participants that reported the project was relevant to them
# or % of participants that were satisfied with the delivery of the project
Some example impact indicators include:
# of participants that have an increased understanding of the consequences of rigid gender roles or stereotypes
# of participants that demonstrate an increased understanding of the types of behaviour that constitute violence against women
# of participants that understand more about norms on masculinity and how these norms impact on individual health outcomes
# of participants that conform to masculine norms at baseline compared to at the end of a program (only for longer programs i.e. 3 to 4 years)
# of participants that identify actions they will take to call out sexism and sexist jokes in their everyday lives
