Women have been at the forefront of gender awareness issues for the last few decades, but men have recently begun to raise awareness to their own issues. And This year, just in time for world men’s day, VF Inc will be hosting the 3rd Annual Men’s Symposium this Saturday.
This year’s theme for world men’s day “Stop Male Suicide”, brings to light the alarming levels of suicides committed by males in the world today. Bureau of Gender Affairs Technical officer, Kimanie Lapse, states that the rate of suicide in the male population is three times that of women, so this symposium is the perfect opportunity to highlight that issue.
