Australia: The federal government launches three-year project to address toxic masculinity on social media

Article here. Excerpt:

'The federal government has announced it will fund a three-year trial project tackling harmful messages of toxic masculinity on social media.

The healthy masculinities trial project will receive $3.5 million to run both face-to-face and online presentations at schools, sporting clubs and other community organisations to teach school-aged boys about respectful relationships not just with their peers, but also with themselves.

Starting with boys as young as five years old, the program aims to counteract dangerous gender stereotypes and messages of toxic masculinity circulated by online influencers like Andrew Tate.'
