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.
