Do you ever wonder why:
* Men are one-third more likely to develop prostate cancer than women are to develop breast cancer, yet 50% more funding goes to women's health over men's
* Men and women commit domestic abuse against each other at roughly equal rates (for every level of severity), yet there is 1 men's shelter in all of Canada and it just opened this year
* Men now account for under 60% of undergraduate enrollment while boys are performing significantly worse then girls in grade school, yet affirmative action programs continue to "empower women and girls" only
* Female genital mutilation is considered a UN human rights violation yet male genital mutilation is supported by doctors, ethicists and is frequently the basis of mockery on TV
We present a meetup group for exploring gender issues involving parental and custody rights, violence, education, health, safety & security, poverty and the workplace, from a male perspective. However, other topics will be explored at the pleasure of the members.
The Toronto Men's Issues Meetup Group is also looking for individuals who might wish to volunteer to assist om public outreach and awareness projects, including a podcast, lecture series and special campaigns. Please contact email@example.com. Visit the blog www.equalismactivism.com for regular postings on these issues.
