The clock is ticking on male suicide

A strong piece on male suicide from Peter Wright. Between 1982 and 2012, the male:female suicide rate differential rose from 1.69 to 3.3. Not only does the government take no interest in the matter, it is the prime driver of male suicide by denying fathers access to children, denying support to male victims of domestic violence, driving up female employment and therefore male unemployment – although male unemployment has long been higher than female unemployment – and in many other ways, as outlined in our election manifesto.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    I have to admit that until I got a grip on that, outside the female narrative, my ex-wife had a great capacity to drive me to despair.
