Brave Men SA-Healthy Masculinity

We come to the end of a three-part series with Dane Smith, Founder of Brave Men South Africa-an organisation that provides a platform for men to gather and talk about issues they face. This series tackles toxic masculinity during a time that the South African society is grappling with gender-based violence and femicide. The first episode of the series kicked off with the conversation around community standards of toxic masculinity, while the second episode unpacked shame and vulnerability faced by men, and this final episode wraps up the series with a discussion about healthy masculinity.

Brave Men SA encourages men from all walks of life to make use of this platform to change the narrative around masculinity.
