THE MAKING OF MEN

WOW (Women of the World) Australia

Presented by Metro Arts and Brisbane Festival

How can we overturn cultural pressures and traditions, and raise men who are happy, emotionally secure, capable of love and tears? 

As every parent will attest, somewhere along the way, loving little boys learn a whole set of rules about what it takes to be a man – often with disastrous consequences for themselves, their loved ones, and their communities.

How can we overturn this cultural pressure and tradition, and raise men who are happy, emotionally secure, capable of love and tears? Bystander trainer Michael Jeh will lead this conversation with men making this change, including journalist David Leser, Men4Respect Coordinator for YFS Andrew Taukolo, and newly appointed MATE Ambassador Rhys Carroll.

This event is AUSLAN Interpreted.
