Petition Equality - Review all law, policy and strategy to meet the needs of men and boys
Split the Difference wants Parliament to review all Legislation, Policy & Strategies to ensure men and boys are represented equally in the narrative or they are gender neutral.
We want both genders to have equality and their human rights served through services designed based on evidenced need.
We have evaluated over 15 acts of law and the services delivered based on these acts. We believe the UK government has written these in favour of women and girls often excluding men and boys. We now have (this is a mere snapshot):
More boys are failing in school
Fewer boys make University applications
2 out of 3 suicides are men
More men are homeless and sleeping rough
Inadequate services for male victims of domestic abuse
None of the above appear to have the same focus for males as females.
