Man down : why men are unhappy and what we can do about it

Rudd, Matt2022
From the outside, the men of today should be happy. They have it comparatively easy. They still get paid more for doing the same jobs. They are still 40% more likely than women to be promoted to management roles. At home, men do washing-up and petrol, wine and bins. Women still do everything else. But below the surface, there's a different story unfolding. Men in the UK are three times more likely to take their own life than women. Men aged 45-49 have the highest rate of suicide, nearly four times that of women the same age. Their reported levels of stress are higher and their levels of happiness are lower. The evidence is clear and ironic: the system set up by men, which doesn't work for women, isn't working for men either. It's making none of us happy. Matt Rudd delves into the reasons behind this unhappiness, and what we might be able to do about it.
