Violence Against Women and Girls is one of the most prevalent human rights violations in the world and the UK. It has no social, economic or national boundaries.
While men as a group are still very much in power globally, dominating all mainstream institutions of power, this does not mean that every individual man will feel powerful, probably far from it. With suicide being the biggest killer of men under 45 years of age in the UK. ChildLine has recently launched a new campaign called ‘Tough To Talk’ to encourage boys to seek help with depression and suicidal thoughts. Men are three times more likely than women to be alcohol dependent, they are more likely to use, and to die from, illegal drugs. Boys are more likely to be excluded from school than girls, far more men languish in our prisons and men face a higher risk of violence than women.
In this unique training we deep dive Toxic Masculinity, Incel culture, misogyny and the ‘Manosphere’. We explore the gendered links, couplings and assumptions that we need to be interrogating and reflecting on in our classrooms and youth organisations. The course brings together some of the most important approaches, exploring role modelling good gender relations, language and avoiding sexist assumptions, speaking out against sexist phrases, and calling out harmful behaviour without humiliating or shaming, or escalating the situation.
