MEN AND BOYS IN THE UK EXPERIENCE A BROAD RANGE OF INEQUALITIES THROUGH LIFE

Men work longer and die younger. They have unequal pension rights and unequal parenting rights.

More men are homeless, unemployed, imprisoned and victims of violence and crime.

Boys are more likely to be failed and rejected by their families, failed by schools and grow up lacking adult role models of the same sex.

More men are addicted, murdered and take their own lives.

Men are often badly served, poorly treated and negatively viewed by our national support systems which are less effective at helping men and boys.

All of these problems combine to prevent men and boys from flourishing and reaching their full potential.
