For the last few months I’ve been working with the wonderful People Fixing The World team at the BBC World Service, researching and producing new stories about solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges.
My first project saw me meeting The Good Lad Initiative, a project helping to tackle everyday sexism. You can have a listen below.
“Men and boys are being taught how to tackle some of the uncomfortable truths about everyday sexism.
Many don’t realise the extent of the problem – cat-calling, unwelcome comments and dominating behaviour are all things that women across the world put up with on a daily basis.
This week’s solution looks at a project called the Good Lad Initiative in the UK, which is trying to help men understand why it happens and how they can help change things. It also helps them to improve their relationships with other men and challenge traditional values.
Robbie Wojciechowski meets ambassadors for the group as they train and he finds out how positive masculinity workshops are creating communities of men who want to help in the fight for equality.
