The founder of The Good Men Project, Tom Matlack, has announced he is officially departing from his role of Board Member, columnist and advisor to The Good Men Project.
It is a testament to Tom Matlack’s original vision that The Good Men Project has become a part of the cultural conversation on manhood in less than 3 years since the website launched in June of 2010. Almost 10 million visitors have come to the website, from every country in the world. The website has published over 15,000 stories, posts and articles and has been written about and talked about in mainstream media — from The New York Times, to The Atlantic, to the BBC to regular appearances on HLN. The Good Men Project is holding a conversation that no one else is having, brought on by Tom Matlack’s original quest to “spark a national conversation about what it means to be a good man in the 21st century.”
The original goal of The Good Men Project was to allow a place to tell men’s stories — stories that speak to the male experience and “change the teller and change the listener”. From those stories has come an ongoing discussion of the issues that men today face — parenting, marriage, gender roles, war, pornography, business ethics, sports, addiction and many others. The vision has extended the storytelling of men, by men, for men, into a cultural conversation that is lively, dynamic, multi-media and cross-platform, and with a diversity of voices.
