THANKS FOR TAKING ACTION TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR MEN AND BOYS!
Dear My Nice MP
I am concerned that you and your party are not doing enough to improve the lives of men and boys in the UK.
Boys are underperforming girls at ever stage of education; 12 men die from suicide every day; men are twice as likely to die before the age of 65; men and boys are the main victims of crime and violence and dads don’t have equal rights or equal opportunities to be involved in their children’s lives.
Furthermore, 90% of rough sleepers are men; 95% of prisoners are men; 96% of people who die at work are men; 99% of soldiers who die serving the country are men; 70% of long-term unemployed youth are male an 84% of recession suicides are men.
I have two questions for you, first could you tell me if you have read the report “Putting the Man in your Manifesto: 12 manifesto challenges for the 2015 general election”? If not you can read about it here: https://equality4men.com/manifesto.
Secondly could you please tell me what action you and your party are going to take to ensure the many different issues that affect men and boys disproportionately are being tackled by the Government?
Bye For Now
Your Nice Constituent
