EQUALITY 4 MEN

The Global Campaign for Men and Boys

Challenge 10: How will you help men in all their diversity?

120 reasons #76

Men and boys from different communities (for example — black men, gay men, disabled men) may face specific issues because they are men.

We know for example that gay men are twice as like to be victims of homophobic hate crime as lesbian women and 96% of racially motivated murder victims are men and boys.

We also know that boys are more likely to experience certain disabilities and poor black boys with special educational needs are 168 times more likely to be excluded from school than richer white girls who don’t have a special educational need.

These figures are just the tip of the iceberg and much more work is needed to understand how being male impacts the disadvantage, discrimination and inequality that men and boys of different backgrounds experience.

To help us  create a society that is fair and equal for all, we invite all political parties to consider how gender affects men and boys from different backgrounds.
