Now and Men

By Durham University Centre for Research into Violence and Abuse
What's it like to be a man in the 21st century? How are feminist issues relevant to men? These questions are being discussed more than ever.

Our new monthly podcast will delve into these issues with experts like practitioners, activists and researchers. In each episode, you’ll hear conversations about masculinity, gender equality, and the lives of men and boys, with topics ranging from preventing violence against women, to promoting active fatherhood, to supporting men's health.

The podcast is created and hosted by Dr Stephen Burrell, Sandy Ruxton and Professor Nicole Westmarland, who are researchers from the Centre for Research into Violence and Abuse (CRiVA), in the Department of Sociology at Durham University in the UK.
