Now arrange the organization Men a general meeting – after the SVT:s documentary about Josefin Nilsson. ”Many have had enough”, write the organizers, ”there are many men who want to contribute to change”. The meeting will be held at Södra teatern in Stockholm on Friday 29 march.
– There are issues that we have worked with for many years, and that it must continue to work with continuously: to lift the men's responsibility and participation in gender equality, that men have responsibility for men's violence against women, " says Alán Ali, who is the chairman of the Men's.
– it can happen to anyone anywhere, regardless of class background. Regardless of how something looks or seems from the outside, can this last on the inside. It also highlights a tystnadskultur around these issues, that they are all around, for example, a workplace may feel to it but put the lid on, " says Alán Ali.
During the stormötet there will be a panel discussion with people from the film and theater world.
– It is important to break the tystnadskulturen and show that there are people within the culture who care and want to change. It is not about defaming and culture, but about creating a platform where people can reflect and take responsibility.
– Primarily to men. We have worked a lot with the general assemblies, in particular after Metoo, and some of these meetings are könsseparatistiska. But this time all come, even the women and ickebinära are welcome and have registered for the meeting.
