Regarding movements - check out www.1bluestring.org. It's an awareness campaign meant to get people to understand and start talking about the 1 in 6 statistic. This Fall it's going to be nationwide - sort of the "pink ribbon" campaign for men like us.

So great responses here, There seem to have been Three studies done on the Subject. One in 1984 one in 1979 and one in 1996, by a Dr John Hooper.

OK So old stats and really outdated ideas.

If any one is keen to assist me in starting a study, I can only do South Africa, and I am thinking of starting at the Universities, Colleges and Schools, Then Drop me a line and let me know.
I will try to contact Dr Hooper and get the criteria for the study and see if we can use that as a basis so there is some consistency.

So for you brave lads, Let me know.

Thanks all
Martin
