This document will be known as the White Paper Document from the government to Stortinget (Parliament) on male roles and gender equality. An important purpose of this report is to gather factual materials and data on men and male roles. The material shows clearly that there are great social differences between groups of men, and that there is good reason to use the term “the extreme gender” when referring to men. Men make up both the upper echelons and the lower strata of society. They are over-represented in the power forum, and yet they also top the statistics for violence, criminality and suicide. Eight out of ten pupils with serious behavioural problems in schools are boys.
