Sudbury letter: Men and boys face challenges, too

Article here. Excerpt:

'With the correction, the Status of Women Committee’s call for comment on intimate partner and domestic violence gave me hope that, finally, we realized some domestic violence is genderless. My hope quickly turned to indignation when I read what the study will investigate:

– causes of intimate partner violence, including toxic masculinity;

– ways to improve support and protection for women and girls; and

– ways to eliminate barriers facing women and girls seeking to leave unsafe environments.

This wording perpetuates the myth men are violent and women are victims and leads to engrained sexism and misandry beliefs, prejudice, bias and bigotry, harmful to all Canadians.'
