Boys neglected in today's society

By Simon Karathe | April 20th 2016

The high number of campaigns highlighting issues affecting girls has made the society neglect boys.

I think today's society vilifies boys and protects girls. For instance, where there is domestic violence and the woman suffers, the man is taken to task. But if it is the man who suffers, little is done for him to get justice.

We are all focusing on girls while boys are suffering. Little or no campaign has been done to help the boy child.

In school, girls are provided with sanitary towels and encouraged to take education seriously. On the career front; the girl child is given an upper hand.
