Welcome to The Good Men Project community. 

The Good Men Project started 7 years ago with the idea to "spark an international conversation about the changing roles of men in the 21st century." And oh, what a spark that has been. 

Over 6,000 contributors have published over 75,000 articles. We've had over 250 million readers from every country in the world. And we've had Editors from around the globe, including The US, Canada, The UK, Spain, Australia, Singapore, Thailand, and Laos.

We've seen the conversation grow wider and deeper, more nuanced and more provocative. We’ve seen people change. We’ve seen men become more open to the idea of what masculinity is and how social pressures sometimes influence their choices. We’ve seen women become more understanding of men’s experience and what they’ve been through.

We’ve seen the connections between what we call the ‘Man-Box’ and social issues like racism, sexism, and homophobia, and that has given us insights into how to help create positive social change. We’ve seen the perception of dads change throughout the years and we are proud that Good Men Project has been part of that change. We are no less in awe of the potential for what we can actually accomplish here than we were on the day we launched. We have passed 450 million total pageviews, but it still feels like just the beginning.

We believe you will enjoy contributing to a mission-based publication that has a vast reach and high engagement. We’ve built an incredible community here, and people who join The Good Men Project know that they have helped build something extraordinary.

Anyone can contribute, anyone can take part in The Good Men Project in some way. But if you really want to be a deeply engaged part of our community, please consider joining our Good Men Project Premium Membership community.
