A challenge facing too many young men is the sense that they have to live up to the unspoken rules of masculinity – clichés such as “boys don’t cry” and “toughen up”.
White Ribbon encourages everyone to challenge the unspoken rules, so we can let boys and young men enjoy their individuality and define themselves as men who have respectful relationships with themselves and their partners – creating happier, healthier communities for us all.
The Government has announced $12b of infrastructure projects today. In our region this includes the Melling interchange, Ōtaki to Levin highway, a Hutt Valley maternity upgrade, repairing leaky pipes at Wellington Hospital, an acute mental health facility in Hutt Valley and investment in Wellington's rail network.
