The Canadian Association for Equality and the University of Toronto Men’s Issues Awareness Society presentThe Invisibility of Male Issues: Men vs the Media, Politicians, Pop Culture
Thursday, September 27, 2012, 7:00 – 9:00 PM
Earth Sciences Centre (ES) Rm B-149, University of Toronto (22 Russell St)

* Politicians court the female vote while avoiding at all cost discussion of “male issues.”

* Media makes gender the focus when an issue disproportionately affects women but gender is ignored when the vulnerable are majority men.

* Charities may ignore evidence supporting a balanced approach to service provision in order to privilege one gender with their programs.

Fred Litwin, President of the Free Thinking Film Society of Ottawa, will explore the dearth of discussion of male issues in the political world, the media, government, and popular culture.
