Man Links #14: 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.

(If these aren’t enough links for for you here are the previous posts including the Further Reading List for the show.)

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

And it isn’t long till International Men’s Day which is on the 19th November. Here are my thoughts on that. Believe it or not that day also happens to be when I’m next doing the #ManSurvey show, this scheduling wasn’t deliberate but it is apt because between the #ManSurvey show and AJ McKenna‘s Howl of the Bantee both the terrible things that happen to men, and the terrible things that men do, will be covered in full. The night is called Stand Up Tragedy Presents… and is happening at The Dogstar, in Brixton. It’s free entry with donations gladly accepted based on what you think the shows are worth and what you can afford.

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.
