How to be a man

How to be a man

This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise

An evening of conversation, ideas and entertainment, new and exclusively for Tortoise members. 

Tortoise Lates: Masculinity tries to make sense of maleness and masculinity: what it looks like, how it works and how it affects us.

What does it mean to be a man today? The term ‘toxic masculinity’ can describe aggression, lack of empathy and emotional illiteracy. It’s also been used to explain why mental ill-health amongst men, particularly younger men, is on the rise. How can we have a better conversation about what masculinity means today?
