Today, November 19, is International Men’s Day. According to the WHO, average global male life expectancy is five years lower than for women, and the male suicide rate is three times that of women. This day aims to highlight health concerns that can affect men, and also aims to highlight certain social pressures that can negatively affect both men and boys. Check out InternationalMensDay.com for more information. This image is from a pop-up exhibit our Historical Medical Library hosted at last month’s Mischief at The Mütter event. This historical (not contemporary) pamphlet was distributed to boys with information about puberty, sexual health and more. How effectively have these issues been communicated to young men throughout history and today?
