Stories of Dear Fathers

In July, the Prio Baba (“Dear Father”) campaign in Bangladesh, led by MenCare partner Center for Men and Masculinities Studies (CMMS), recognized eight fathers championing the empowerment of women and girls at an award ceremony in Dhaka. These men have served as role models due to their rejection of harmful traditional practices related to fatherhood and efforts to sensitize people about the rights of women and children.

The Prio Baba campaign published the accounts of the eight fathers in a photo book in Bengali titled Prio Babader Golpo (“Stories of Dear Fathers,” in English). Read their stories in English in the blog post here.
