“What’s a man now, what’s a man mean…?” Authors Christine Emba and Shadi Hamid return to Interintellect to try to find out: while women have spent the past century trying to redefine their role in the home, place in society, and relationship with themselves, what has been happening with men’s self-image, role models, public participation? Join our discussion!
The past 100 odd years have seen women go from second class citizens without property rights or electoral power to gradually becoming more equal members of societies worldwide than ever before in recorded history.
The character, education, and political liberties of women have been discussed in texts for thousands of years; since the First World War their cause has become a leading issue in public discourse, with an unbelievable number of books, celebrity profiles, and academic careers devoted to it.
But what have men been doing all this time? Who are the leading voices, what are the most important ideas when it comes to how men react to this unprecedented social change, and how they are also rethinking who they are? And why is it that we so often talk about a “crisis of masculinity”?
