Using the case study of Andrew Tate, we'll explore how social media can contribute to the promulgation of unhealthy masculinities and harmful norms as well as discuss possible solutions. Cases like Tate represent concerning undercurrents, like the growth of the manosphere and increasing polarisation. We’ll also discuss the role of social media in sparking global movements like #MeToo.
