As a Support Team we are incredibly proud of the work we do. As a team we are incredibly proud to be an integral part of The Cornerstone Community Alliance.
As The Cornerstone Community Alliance we are incredibly proud of the gender neutral approach we take to campaigning for #TotalReform. As The CCA Support Team we are also incredibly proud of our gender neutral approach to supporting anyone who has been adversely affected by the unjust nature of the Family Justice System.
However as much as we are proud of our gender neutral approach, this should not prevent us from showing our support for International Men’s Day today.
In our minds anything less would not be equality. The unnecessarily contentious issue that is gender equality is discussed in more detail in our blog post The Inequality of Fighting for Equality.
Returning to this post, take a look at the following statistics:
These statistics speak for themselves. Another statistic that is not in the above image is that suicide is the biggest killer of men in the UK. And the most high risk age range of suicide amongst men are those that are middle aged. So in the interests of equality, please recognise today for what it is. An acknowledgement of how important it simply is to look out for each other more.
Lets try and do this without any preconceived gender stereotyping. Lets do this because it is the right thing to do.
Carys Afoko in her article in The Guardian published today entitled I run a feminist group, but today I am celebrating International Men’s Day writes the following: “Women are not all delicate emotional flowers who need to be protected and rescued. Men are not all violent and sexually aggressive brutes who are only after one thing. Some people don’t even identify as women or men. All of us are living in a culture that puts us into boxes based on old-fashioned ideas that are well past their sell-by date.”
Please Note: We pledge to never make a profit or any other form of financial gain from any individuals affected by the injustice of the Family Justice System.
If you have been, or are currently affected by any of the above, please do not hesitate to get in contact with us. Whether it is for support, to share your story, to seek advice, or all of these reasons, please do get in touch, we are here to help.
We pledge to never request payment from such individuals, nor request a finder’s fee from for any professionals for any referrals made.
