 Breaking Out of the Man Box with Michael Flood PhD: How outdated norms of manhood harm men, and how to build healthier lives for men

Men’s and boys’ lives are limited by narrow, outdated ideas about manhood. Men pay a heavy price for conformity to these ideas, including poorer health, shallower relationships, and violence. But expectations about manhood are changing. Growing numbers of men and boys are moving beyond the constraints of the ‘Man Box’. There is growing recognition that everyone will benefit if men can break free from harmful gender stereotypes. And there are effective ways to promote healthier masculinities.
