The Emily Taylor Center for Women and Gender Equity promotes the redefinition of hegemonic masculinity through our Quick & Dirty: Masculinities 101 presentations (offered by request); our online community MASCULINITIES 101, our Masculinities Month events throughout February, and our "Boys Do Cry" mini zine.
Through these forums, the Emily Taylor Center encourages you to learn about and question hegemonic masculinity, "the collective socialization of men," "the traditional masculine script," “the man box,” and the concept of "toxic masculinity"; consider the relationship between intersectionality and masculinities; explore the differences between patriarchy and feminism as well as between patriarchal masculinity and feminist masculinity. We also share strategies for those seeking to practice and/or nurture feminist masculinities in their everyday lives.
This February, join the Emily Taylor Center for Women and Gender Equity for our first-ever KU Masculinities Month!
