Andrew Tate’s sudden and meteoric rise as a men’s rights influencer has captivated the attention of young men all over the world and shocked many others, including teachers and parents, about why their children are drawn in by his mix of misogyny and self-help guruisms. Despite his arrest on sex trafficking charges by Romanian authorities, his loyal followers continue to stand by him, including a large group of Muslim men.
Educator, teacher, podcaster and speaker Zahara Chowdhury has made a career from talking to young people and their parents about difficult topics - diversity, inclusion, toxic masculinity and social media. As a teacher and parent, her unique perspectives on how to listen, engage and challenge young people on a variety of views have made her a popular speaker across the UK. In this episode of The Big Picture, we sit down with Chowdhury to talk about why Tate and other right-wing influencers appeal to young men and how parents can dispel his most harmful ideas.
