After a great 16 Days Campaign (check out the previous posts if you missed it), Masculinities Mondays is back to its regular routine.
- First up, an article from The Economist on men’s violence in Central America. Despite having the highest male murder rates in the world, new approaches to transform masculinities appear to be showing at least initial signs of reducing rates of violence.
- Secondly, check out actor Terry Crews speaking out about feminism and masculinity. Crews explains,
“I want to be clear that feminism is not saying women are better than men. That’s not what’s going on…what it is is true gender equality.”
Now THAT’S what we’re talking about!
- And, thirdly, since we’re on the topic of promoting non-violent masculinities, you may also want to check out Men Care‘s initiative on The Power of Paternity Leave.
Have a great week, everyone!
