Let's Talk Boys

The effects of gender inequality seem obvious on girls but they have a far more insidious influence on boys. Award winning documentary, The Mask You Live In explores the concept of hyper masculinity among boys and the effects of succumbing to the construct of 'manhood'. Research shows that compared to girls, boys in the U.S. are more likely to be diagnosed with behaviour disorders, prescribed stimulant medications, fail out of school, binge drink, commit a violent crime, and/or take their own lives. 
Making a compelling case for an often ignored fall out of masculinity.
