WOMEN-OWNED AND WOMEN-LED BUSINESSES NOW CONTRIBUTE A TOTAL OF £221BN TO THE UK ECONOMY YET ARE HALF AS LIKELY AS MEN TO START ONE. THERE’S STILL A LOT OF WORK TO DO... - VIA THE POOL (WITH STATS FROM THE FEDERATION OF SMALL BUSINESS’ REPORT ON THE CASE FOR WOMEN IN ENTERPRISE).

AND

ON INTERNATIONAL MENS DAY, ALTHOUGH THE GREAT WORK OF ORGANISATIONS LIKE CALM, THE BOOK OF MAN, SANE AND THE MENTAL HEALTH FOUNDATION HAVE DONE TO REDUCE THE STIGMA OF TALKING ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH MEANS THAT THE MALE SUICIDE RATE HAS DROPPED TO A 30 YEAR LOW, THESE SHOCKING STATISTICS DEMONSTRATE JUST HOW IMPORTANT IT IS THAT WE CONTINUE TO RAISE AWARENESS OF WHAT A CULTURE OF TOXIC MASCULINITY CAN DO, AND JUST HOW IMPORTANT IT IS FOR US TO, TOGETHER, WORK TO BREAK THE STIGMA.
