Men’s Shed in Belconnen?

By belcc 15 February 2008 28

Issues with men’s health, isolation, loneliness and depression are becoming significant health issues in Australia. Men’s Sheds are emerging as a community-driven way of providing significant and practical support for these and other men’s issues.

There are already Men’s Sheds in Canberra – the Majura Men’s Shed (Dickson) and the Lanyon Homestead Shed (Greenway). However, there aren’t any similar services on the north side of Canberra.

As well as a general introduction to Men’s Sheds, the forum will examine the need for a Men’s Shed in Belconnen, and how community groups in Belconnen can work together to get a Men’s Shed established.

It is SO wierd that a story about a Men’s shed brings out the feminist bashing comments….

Not every man is bastard filled bastard, with a bastard filling Pandy. Considering the fact that the feminst agenda is partially based on equality, I hope the shoe you put in your mouth is made of something you like the tase of.

What about a ‘girls only Men’s shed’?

Maybe Fernwood could sponsor it.

Because having a place where men can only go is fundamentally wrong to the feminist movement, all-the-while female only places seem quite reasonable to them.

The simple theory of “hook, line and sinker” IIRC.

how so?

This will not do.

Allowing men to have their own space, will undermine the feminist agenda.
