Thinking Men: Thursday 26th September

Thinking MenThis year’s Third National Conference for Men and Boys 2013 includes our first ever Thinking Men gathering.

We’re bringing together some of the UK’s leading thinkers on men’s issues to explore what we have in common, where we think differently and how we can work together more effectively in the future.

This event is open to men and women from a variety of  fields such as academic research, social sciences and party politics. We’ll also be inviting charity leaders, media commentators, policy advisors and anyone else we think can add to thoughtful discussions  on men and boys issues throughout the day.

If you want to spend a mind-expanding day in the company of dozens of experts who think differently about men and boys then this Thinking Men event is for you.

  6. Did anyone catch this on BBCr4 this morning? It was part of an article about the Department of Health failing to recognise the particular needs of men.
    “The ancient rules of masculinity:
    1. Men should be fighters and winners.
    2. A man should provide and protect.
    3. Men should retail mastery and control.”
    These are the principles identified by Martin Seager ex Head of Psychology at North East London Mental Health Trust as the principle strands of a “Male Script” on BBC R4today this morning. The point he was making is that this script is almost impossible to live up to.
    Also discussing the issue was Jane Powell of CALM
