Book cover - The Man Problem

Bestselling author and social researcher Dr Ross Honeywill reveals the potential for destructive masculinity as the social, political and economic problem of our age. He challenges every man to acknowledge the problem by rising to the solution – commencing with recognition that men enjoy unearned privilege while women enjoy social, political and economic disadvantage.

In this original, engaging and accessible address Dr Honeywill unveils new research on the origins and impact of destructive masculinity. He reveals that Australia is remasculinising and offers a possible way forward – a prognosis for each of us to be a man-problem-solver. With rape, domestic violence and gender inequity on the rise, this is a conversation for its time.

Dr Honeywill will be joined in a forum and Q&A session by Robin Banks, Tasmanian Anti-Discrimination Commissioner.

Refreshments from 5.30pm.
