The Emily Taylor Center for Women & Gender Equity promotes the redefinition of masculinity through our Quick & Dirty: Masculinities 101 presentations (offered by request); our online community MASCULINITIES 101
, and our annual Masculinities Symposium.
Through these forums, the Emily Taylor Center encourages you to learn about and question the collective socialization of men, the traditional masculine script, and the concept of “the man box”; 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.
MASCULINITIES SYMPOSIUM – SPRING 2019
Participants in our annual all-day symposium explore topics related to masculinities – including the concepts of patriarchal, toxic, feminist, and healthy masculinities. Check back at the beginning of the SPRING 2019 semester for information regarding registration.

KU MEN OF MERIT POSTER
