Men and Feminism

By Shira Tarrant

$14.95 USD, Trade Paper Original, June 2009

There’s no denying that men’s involvement and interest in feminism is the key to its continuing relevance and importance. Addressing the question of why men should care about feminism in the first place, Men and Feminism lays the foundation for a larger discussion about feminism as a human issue, not simply a women’s issue. Men are crucial to the movement — as fathers, brothers, husbands, boyfriends, and friends. From “why” to “how” to “what can men do”, Men and Feminism answers all the questions men need to know about how and why they should get behind feminism.
