Masculinities and health: attitudes towards men and masculinities in Australia

Masculinity Public health Public opinion Gender

There is a wealth of evidence that masculinities – the social organisation of men’s lives and relations and the meanings given to being male – are influential determinants of men’s health and wellbeing, their likelihood of perpetrating domestic and sexual violence, their involvements in fathering, their risks of suicide and a host of other issues. Given this, there is increasing interest in addressing those aspects of masculinity that are unhealthy, limiting, or dangerous and in promoting other, healthier masculinities.
