Toxic masculinity behind huge rise in acid attacks across UK

Article here. Excerpt:

'None of the policies and interventions aimed at responding to acid violence have engaged meaningfully with this fact. Proactive prevention strategies must involve sensitising men and boys to the effects of gender-based violence, including acid attacks, and incorporating them into prevention activities.

Such approaches should be prioritized—or at least simultaneously implemented—as reactive strategies such as policing acid sellers and purchasers and seeking longer jail sentences for perpetrators, which countries like Great Britain, Italy, Bangladesh and India are currently pursuing.'
