Man Links #21: articles exploring issues around #Mansurvey

On Wednesdays I share articles and other links that I’ve come across over the last week, which touch on issues that crossover with the #ManSurvey. This week the links are ones I’ve come across over the holiday season as I took two week’s off(!)

(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, war, prejudice, suicide, violence and other aspects of patriarchy:
