The South Asian Network to Address Masculinities (SANAM) is a network of NGOs (national and regional), academics and activists who believe that the toxicity of masculinities needs to be challenged if we are to dream of a violence free world. Masculinities and violence, it has been suggested, are inextricably linked in creating and maintaining all forms of inequalities. SANAM provides a platform for South Asians to work together in developing a culture of resistance to gender based violence.
