The way we talk about sexual abuse isn’t working for men and boys.
At Mankind, we have recognised that things have to change.
Join us in committing to be part of that change.
Make your pledge.
I recognise that:
- Men can also be the victims of sexual violence and abuse
- Not all sexual crimes are committed by men
I therefore acknowledge that the way we think and talk about sexual crimes is too simplistic and needs to change.
I pledge to become a part of this change by challenging existing social stereotypes in how we hear, think and talk about the sexual abuse of men and boys.

Mankind feels the way we talk about the sexual abuse of men and boys is often limited by unhelpful myths and stereotypes. As a result, society is stuck – support services are restricted, men stay silent, and communities continue to suffer.
What we have isn’t working.
We want something that works better for men – something that works better for everyone. We’ve set up the ‘working for men’ page as an open blog to open up the debate.
We want you to tell us what you think needs to change, how things could be different…

I pushed my comfort zone recently and went to a performance of GROOMED, a piece/play about the affects of sexual abuse on a boy and how it changed how he conducted himself throughout the rest of his life. A truly eye opening evening which really opened up the subject...
