About Reform – Resource Centre for Men

Reform – resource center for men is a politically independent not-for-profit organisation. Founded in 2002 and mainly funded by the Department for Children, Equality and Inclusion, the organisation works towards gender equality from a male perspective.

We believe that men as well as women benefit from increased gender equality, and that men as well as women experience challenges based on their gender.
