“Boys Don’t Speak” is an online awareness project organized by the Rotaract club of University of Kelaniya. The main purpose of this project was to bring up an unfocused social issue in Sri Lanka to everyone’s attention.
We discussed issues and difficulties that men faced due to a variety of reasons but never had the opportunity to be exposed in society. Although the world always discusses “gender equality,” some cultural and social ideologies present many obstacles to men. Especially when it comes to emotions, men tend to hide their feelings because society judges them by gender.
So basically “Boys Don’t Speak” was an anonymous platform to reveal their tension, their inner feelings and what they were afraid to reveal.
