Newsbytes - 2008


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 2008. See also 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001, 2000 and 1999. A click on the photo will often provide a larger photo or additional information regarding the topic.

Action of the Week selects a particular action to take for the week. We encourage you to write the corporations and the government and give them your viewpoint. 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.
