(Re) Formulating the Men’s Movement

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Popular responses to the women’s movement and corresponding men’s movements have received extensive media attention, from fathers’ rights groups to the mythopoetic men’s movement, yet public recognition of pro-feminist men has been minimal. In the midst of many anti-feminist and traditionalist men organizing to combat the current “crisis of masculinity”, the group Strong Men Speak recently banded together to address the very same issue, yet relying on an entirely different gender ideology. Outwardly rejecting notions of gender essentialism, the group’s members recognize the value and relevance of the women’s movement and of female participants to their own shared aims. In this way, Strong Men Speak is distinct in both content and form from all other attempts at collectively addressing issues around masculinity, men’s wellbeing, and fathers’ involvement in family/home life. I argue that women are instrumental to this strain of the men’s movement, 1) as participants, for they share a vested interest in the outcomes of this group’s aims and are key players in some of the areas targeted for change, and 2) as allies, specifically since the group will rely on many of the tactics set forth by the women’s movement. Finally, I also maintain that their name directly contradicts their aims and may serve to hinder their hopes for success.
