The equality4men campaign is concerned with the inequalities that impact men and boys of all backgrounds at every stage of life. The years when boys first enter adulthood are the most vulnerable years of most men’s lives.
The following list of 10 reasons we need equality for young men is drawn from our eBook Equality For Men which you can buy today.
2. Premature Death ~ Compared with women of the same age, young men are four times more likely to die in an accident, four times more likely to kill themselves and three times more likely to be murdered. On average, five young men die prematurely every single day and most of these deaths are avoidable.
3. Murder ~ Young men are three times more likely to be murdered than young women with 3 young men being murdered every week in England & Wales.
