In a world where discussions on gender-related issues often centre on women and girls, it is crucial to recognize that men and boys can also be victims of abuse.
Their experiences are just as valid and significant, and they deserve our attention and support. A study published by JMIR Publications sheds light on the unique challenges faced by male victims of abuse.
It reveals that male children are more likely to be sexually abused at a younger age, while female children are vulnerable to assault at various stages, particularly during adolescence. These traumatic experiences can have lasting effects on the lives of these boys as they grow into men.
In light of this, WADR’s Naa Dedei Tetey speaks to some men to explore their perspectives on activism for men’s rights. Join us as we delve into this important discussion on this week’s edition of 50-50.
