    Wow, just wow. Great talk and I would add the world needs more of this kind of discussion. Thanks to The Men’s Network for leading the way!

    A recommendation: Make a series of Utube videos on various men’s issues, they will draw in more supporters for the project.

    Bravo. For more in the same spirit, please see the Center for Men and Boys in Social Policy .

    Great, Glen! Gender inclusive is the way, with support for men and boys who are victims as well as services which work with women who are abusers. When the difference in numbers between male and female abusers is 2/13ths, I’ll write that again, two thirteenths, then the safety of children is not achieved by viewing only men as abusers and only women as victims.

      Thanks David – there are many areas where men and boys are less likely to get support- today is the launch of men’s health week and Men’s Health Forum pointed out that “Services often fail to (consider men’s health needs) with result that men are far less likely to access them than women,” say the Men’s Health Forum.

      In the world of violence and abuse – whether it’s domestic violence, child abuse, street violence, elder abuse, institutional abuse etc etc, you get taken less seriously as a victim if you are male and/or if your attacker is female

      If we are committed to equality, then this is an issue we need to address
