While our understanding of the risks and vulnerabilities that adolescent girls face due to gender norms has grown exponentially over the last decade, our understanding of what works to transform discriminatory gender norms in specific contexts remains nascent.

Gender and Adolescence: Global Evidence (GAGE) mixed methods longitudinal research programming is following the lives of 18,000 adolescent girls and boys in six focal countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East throughout adolescence (10-19 years) to explore what types of policies and programmes are most effective in shifting harmful gender norms and why – not just in the short-term but more sustainably.

This GAGE on briefing discusses change strategies to support gender norm change through:

  • empowering girls
  • engaging with boys and men
  • supporting families
  • promoting community social norm change
  • strengthening school systems, and
  • strengthening adolescent focussed services and systems.
