And the guest blog I wrote for Girl on the Net about the #ManSurvey was shared in this week’s F Word round up.
Please be aware of a general content note: some of these links touch on sexual assault, rape, violence and other aspects of patriarchy, sometimes in detail:

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.
