Why is everyone talking about Mascuilinity these days? What exactly do we mean by it? Is there only one kind of masculinity or do we have to deal with many masculinities.
This lusidly written pamphlet explores the meaning of masculinity and its importance for gender relations, social arrangements , political and economic system, and religious and family ideologies. It loks at hegemonic masculinity, militant masculinity, working class and bourgeois masculinity; it examines the link between communalism, fundamentalism and masculinism and capitalism and masculinity and femininity on women and men both and suggest alternatives for transforming gender relations.
All presented in the author's inimitable question-and -answer style.
