What is it to be masculine? Acting tough? Self-sufficiency? Sexual prowess? Aggression?
Join us for a dynamic panel with:
♣ Gary Barker, The Man Box study author, Promundo President/CEO
♣ H.E. Jorge Lomónaco, Ambassador Permanent Mission of Mexico to the UN Office in Geneva #INTGenderChampions

♣ Moderator: Claire Somerville, Executive Director, Gender Centre, Graduate Institute
New research from Promundo-US shows that The Man Box is alive and well in the US, the UK and Mexico. Men who adhere to toxic ideas of manhood are more likely to be depressed, consider suicide, binge drink, drive dangerously and use multiple forms of violence against others. Beyond young men, we know that toxic masculinities show up in workplaces, boardrooms, parliaments, sports fields, schools and beyond.
Addressing these ideas requires urgent action, and it is a key part of achieving equality for women and improving men's own lives and the quality of life that both women and men deserve.
WomenAtTheTable in partnership with the International Gender Champions and The Graduate Institute Geneva host an event on The Man Box.
