Gun Free SA Board member's book on masculinity published

Malose Lange, one of Gun Free SA's Board members, has just published a book on masculinity. MaloseLanga BecomingMenBook

Becoming Men follows a group of young black South African boys over a period of 11 years, exploring the paths they have taken to become young men.

Malose reflects on Becoming Men in The Conversation: Decade-long study shows why South Africa needs to stop stereotyping young black men.

"Being a different boy is “hard work”, so it is important that young adolescent boys are assisted in negotiating these challenges of boyhood and also the transition into healthy manhood."

Becoming Men is available online and at bookstores.
