Colleagues at the Violence Against Women Program of the VicHealth & La Trobe University (Australia) Partnership have launched a new website: XY Online. Here’s information from the site’s “About” page:
XY is a website focused on men, masculinities, and gender politics. XY is a space for the exploration of issues of gender and sexuality, the daily issues of men’s and women’s lives, and practical discussion of personal and social change.
- A forum for debate and discussion, including commentary on contemporary and emerging issues in gender and sexual politics;
- A resource library or clearinghouse for key reports, manuals, and articles;
- A toolkit for activism, personal transformation and social change.
XY features over 200 articles on key â€˜men’s issues’, from fathering and men’s health to the relationships between masculinity, class, race and sexuality, to domestic violence. XY makes available key national and international guides and manuals to working with men and boys and engaging men and boys in projects of building gender equality, ending violence against women, and striving for social justice. XY also includes personal stories, book reviews, and links to related websites.
XY is intended to be comprehensive, cutting-edge, and global. XY represents one of the most substantial resources on men and gender issues on the internet. And it is one of the most well-known, and linked-to, profeminist sites in the world.
Dr Michael Flood, who coordinates the blog, is glad to hear from volunteers who would like to contribute guest blog posts. He can be contacted at: email@example.com.
