Unmasking Sexual Harassment: How Toxic Masculinities Drive Men’s Abuse in the US, UK, and Mexico and What We Can Do to End It is a research brief produced by Promundo for the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2018.
In a pioneering recent study, Promundo explored young men’s views about manhood through a new research tool called the “Man Box,” a scale composed of 17 attitude statements on toxic masculinity. The original study included representative samples of more than 1,000 young men each in the United States (US), United Kingdom (UK), and Mexico, across rural and urban areas and all educational and income levels. The survey was carried out in September and October 2016. For the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2018, Promundo carried out additional data analysis, focusing specifically on learning more about young men and sexual harassment.
