Promundo, Axe, and research partners – set out at the end of 2016 to investigate young men’s lives in the United States (US), the United Kingdom (UK), and Mexico. The central analytical tool of the study is what we and many others call the “Man Box”: a set of beliefs, communicated by parents, families, the media, peers, and other members of society, that place pressure on men to be a certain way. This study seeks to give research rigor to the concept of the Man Box, measuring how young men encounter these messages socially and internalize them personally.
