REPOST – MAN UP AND CRY
Because gender violence affects not only women, today we are sharing this powerful video produced by AJ+. The video starts by questioning “Why do we tell our boys to stop crying? To harden up?” By asking men to cry, the video wants to raise awareness about the taboo surrounding depression and suicide among men. According to the video, globally, men commit suicide in greater numbers than women. However, they way masculinities are defined in most cultures in the world, make harder for men to reach out for help timely.
