More Info

If you're a man who's disturbed by other men's behaviour towards women, what's the best use of your energy? Arguing on the internet seems to make things worse. Supporting progressive causes on social media can seem hollow, or suspect. Being too outspoken or involved can undermine women's voices. It's easy to feel frustrated or confused or stuck.

We will kick off a discussion with a twenty minute video screening looking at the critical differences between MRA (Men's Rights Activists) and men's support groups like the non-profit we volunteer for, the ManKind Project. A social with light snacks will follow.

For the last thirty years, a positive men's movement has been quietly growing -- a movement that is about men stepping up to do their share of the emotional labour. It facilitates men working to be better men together, working through old wounds, learning to be emotionally authentic with each other, and holding each other accountable. It's about developing a healthy masculinity and brotherhood that's deeply needed in this time of change.
