BEYOND MEN AND MASCULINITY
What is the link between shame and male violence? Why do we find it hard to value kindness and compassion in men? What role do women play in defining what is expected from men and masculinity?
Now more than ever, we need answers to these uncomfortable questions. From the therapy room to the political battlefield, it’s clear the appetite to look beyond traditional gender norms is growing. This film instigates the conversations we need to be having in every aspect of society if we want to facilitate real change.
