Group of honourees for Men’s Week 2018.
ANGUILLA–The Gender Affairs Unit of the Ministry of Social Development has announced the Fifth Men’s Week to be held from June 15 to 23. The theme is “Committed to Change: Men in Enterprising Endeavours.” Some 17 men in Anguilla’s community are being honoured for the impactful work they have provided in their chosen areas of endeavour.
During the week Radio Anguilla will feature “Barbershop Chats” with the honourees each day at 10:30am. Keithstone Greaves and Ivor Hodge will host candid discussions focused on men and relationships, gender stereotypes, the generational transfer of “manhood” and music and identity.

The “Father Cry” Conference will highlight the significance of men, the influence of fathers and the cry of countless hearts in need of male guidance.
