When

Thursday 3 June from 6pm to 9pm

Let’s face it, there’s a lot to perturb us about the relationships between men and women right now. What is the reality of the lives, of men and boys behind our stereotypes? And what of their hidden aches and fears, of their despair? How does this impact the growing divide currently felt between the sexes?

What is it we’re not getting, and what can you and I do about it? Every day we read articles about men - men at home, men at work, men in bed – yet still the confusion and frustration, the exhaustion and heartache. What are the intricate dynamics at play here? What bridges must be built, and how can we best go about this?

Join us and take your seat at the table with special guest, author and social researcher Maggie Hamilton, as she uncovers and challenges our assumptions about men and masculinity. Speaking from her acclaimed research into the lives of men and boys, written up as the book, ‘What Men Don’t Talk About’, that has been continuously in print for over a decade.

This is an invitation to men and women, who desire to intelligently explore, understand and celebrate how we can widen our lens and encourage men to move beyond the current narrow definition of masculinity, which is a difficult fit in our fast-paced, ever-changing global world.

=================

Maggie Hamilton is a researcher and author of many acclaimed books with a Masters in English Literature and expertise in self-development. She is a keen observer of social trends, and has an inspiring vision to combat the increasing social isolation in our families and communities in her latest book, When we Become Strangers. Her other books include: What Men Don’t Talk About; What’s Happening to Our Boys?; and What’s Happening to Our Girls?; Coming Home: Rediscovering our sacred selves, Magic of the Moment and Love Your Work, Reclaim Your Live.
