Newsbytes - 2003

Menstuff® adds information on various issues weekly. We also present a new issue each day at Today. See the list of issues for each month.

What is the media saying of concern to men? Menstuff® has taken excerpts from many periodicals and included our comments - good and bad alike. Here is the archive, to date, for 2003. See also 2002, 2001, 2000 and 1999. A click on the photo will often provide a larger photo or additional information regarding the topic.

A variety of current information is also available: Mediawatch, 2003 provides reviews the media's portrayal of men in advertising and the media. See 2002 and 2001, also. For an index of these and additional stories, see 2002 and 2001.

After reviewing some of these topics, we encourage you to write the corporations and the government and give them your viewpoint. Action of the Week selects a particular action to take for the week. Change doesn't usually take place when only one complaint is received. If you want to be part of the solution, let them hear from you! Here's how. items were added this week.
