Not having seen the terms of reference it is hard to estimate how this might capture issues for men.

I will update the text as information becomes available.

  5. I know this is a subject of particular interest to some regulars at MENZ

    You may want to link your previous relevant articles through comments.

    It will probably be in the post mortem only when it becomes clear how much men are overlooked.

    But on a more positive note it may also bring some awareness to an interested researcher if the links are provided.

  6. At today’s launch RNZ reporter says they are the only media there.

    I’m sure there will be a tsunami of menz war correspondents there.

  9. I thought I better do my bit and go along to the Whangarei meeting.

    I’m bit surprised that there aren’t other comments here as we are one of the last venues.

    Obviously there is a degree of respect toward individual privacy at what happens in these forums but there are some things that can be said.

    It was a room full of women. I was one of the few males.

    Yet in terms of the comments from mothers and professionals these mostly obviously related to boys of all ages through to the sons of society that the system struggles to deal with.

    The conversation was a recipe for overflowing prisons.

    Certainly it was the older women that had the experience of composure to make some much needed submissions and a sad reflection on the current state of our society.

    A real concern that did disturb me was about boys and teenagers losing their sexual function as a result of current medications.

    I haven’t quite processed that one myself yet and I’m trying to relate that to my earlier years. How that might have affected my life.
