Man Links #6: articles exploring issues around #ManSurvey

On Wednesdays I’m sharing articles and other links that I’ve come across over the last week, which touch on issues that crossover with the #ManSurvey.  I’ve finished doing the show daily at the Edinburgh Fringe now and so will go back to posting these round-ups regularly.

(If these aren’t enough links for for you here are the previous posts #1#2#3#4 and #5. And of course there is also the Further Reading List for the show.)

Please be aware of a general content note: some of these links touch on sexual assault, rape, violence and other aspects of patriarchy:

Masculinity Is Killing Men: The Roots of Men and Trauma by Kali Holloway on Alternet

Austerity is a feminist issue – women will be hit twice as hard as men by cuts by Frances Ryan in the New Statesman

Sexual offending in schools: Looking beyond the Dramatic Big Number by Ally Fogg on Freethought blogs

The myth of the “bad” prisoner: Why we’re thinking about US prison reform all wrong by Noah Berlatsky on Quartz

This link is less an article recommendation and more a link to an example of fragile masculinity: UK’s XFM Becomes ‘Male-Focused’ Radio X, Adds Chris Moyles To Line-Up by Music Business Worldwide

Also I took part in this hashtag discussion of masculinity organised by Arts Admin.

And this week’s episode of my Getting Better Acquainted podcast with guest Mathilda Gregory covers a lot of stuff about the #ManSurvey show and many of the themes from the surveys.


Guest blog posts and analysis of the survey are still very welcome. And please do get in touch if you use the #ManSurvey as research, as reference, as teaching material or in any other way,  I am really happy to signal boost and link to what you are doing.
