We Don’t Know What Men Aren’t Telling Us

February 1, 2022

In the conversation of sexism, men’s voice is and always has been very quiet.

In the story of domestic violence, male survivors often remain silent, captured by the toxic gender norms that tell men, “its not possible”.

Or bawked over when sharing stories of sexual assault, with “men can’t be raped.”

And aside from the momentally damaging impact this has on these men’s mental health, and how it deprives them of social nutrition and healing – it also creates a conversation that is one sided.

Leading to academic studies with vast missing pieces, refuges with missing beds, and stories with torn out pages.

We know that men are significantly less likely to tell anyone about their abuse.

But what else do we not know?

And how might this be further impacting advocacy, interventions and provision?
