More than one out of every six men have experienced sexual abuse or assault


Reading Time: 2 minutes

Justice for Men & Boys report that the numbers of abused men is much higher than most people would think.

Whether as a childhood or as adults, men are only slightly less likely to have experienced sexual abuse than women.

Mike Buchanan, the UK political party’s leader writes:

Our thanks to Rob, a generous Australian donor, for pointing us to two videos. The first (5:45) is from an American organization, 1in6. The second(5:04) is the work of William Ayot, a poet, playwright and teacher. He is currently poet-in-residence at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School.

In our last general election manifesto we explored 20 areas where the human rights of men and/or boys are assaulted in the UK today. Sexual abuse of men was the longest of the 20 sections (pp.31-7).

This is an older video on the same subject. Note that the 1-in-6 figure is nothing new.
