The Global Campaign for Men and Boys
Campaigners in Wales have called on the Welsh Government to do more to tackle the inequalities faced by men and boys. Members of Alliance Cymru have sent every Assembly Member in Wales a copy of our book “Equality For Men” in the hope that it will inspire the politicians to take more action to address these “men’s issues” in 2014.

Anne O’Regan of Alliance Cymru said:
“The Welsh Government says it puts equality and inclusion at the heart of the work it does to help Wales to grow and flourish. If this is the case then we want to know what action we can expect to see next year to tackle the many inequalities that men and boys face?
“If any Assembly Members are in any doubt that men and boys do face serious inequality in a number of areas, then the book we have sent them about Equality For Men should set them straight.”
The author of Equality For Men, Glen Poole, said:
“I am delighted that Alliance Cymru have made sure that every Assembly Member in Wales has access to the very latest data on the inequalities that men and boys face. I hope my book, “Equality For Men”, will help them fulfill on their commitment to make Wales a more prosperous and equal place for everyone —- men and boys included.”
Alliance Cymru isn’t the first organisation to call for more focus on men’s issues in Wales. Earlier this year the Royal College of Nursing in Wales called for a national men’s health strategy to help improve men and boys’ lower life expectancy.
Alliance Cymru is a not-for-profit project committed to improving the lives of men and boys in Wales. Its objectives are:
