Masculinities Programming

The Emily Taylor Center for Women and Gender Equity promotes the redefinition of hegemonic masculinity through our Masculinities 101 workshop, our MASCULINITIES 101 Facebook Group, and our "Boys Do Cry" mini zine.

 

In February 2019, the Emily Taylor Center for Women and Gender Equity launched our first-ever KU Masculinities Month. To learn more about our inaugural event series, check out Alex Rothers's article for The University Daily Kansan. During this academic year (2019-2020) and in the future, we are hosting Masculinities Month in November.

 

Through the above 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.

KU MEN OF MERIT POSTER

The KU Men of Merit Poster, which was issued from 2009 to 2017, recognized KU men ― students, staff, faculty, and alumni ― who redefine masculinity by challenging norms, taking action, and leading by example while making outstanding achievements and contributions to KU and Lawrence communities.
