Men Speak Out: Views on Gender, Sex, and Power

by Shira Tarrant


"Instead of wasting energy on the questions of who is and is not allowed within the land of feminism, Tarrant offers a survey of those who live and work within the movement by their own determination...Men Speak Out succeeds on two fronts: by expanding the concept of 'We' in feminism and by offering those young men who are increasingly appearing in gender studies classes a chance to read their own voices, and see themselves as 'We'." -- Keely Savoie, Bitch Magazine

"Men Speak Out is an important book for feminism...This book provides something important in reframing the old debates about women's rights, especially in this supposedly post-feminist time." -- Mandy Van Deven, Feminist Review

"One of the best things about these essays is that they are so approachable. While you might not agree with every single writer, you don't have to worry about being offended or patronized. This collection represents a wide spectrum of ideas, but they are all presented in a respectful, articulate manner...Men Speak Out is an important text for feminist scholars and the general public." -- Allyson Whipple, BitchBuzz Review

"...a well-written, engrossing collection that adds even more male voices to the ever-growing body of literature on men and masculinity" -- J.R. Mitrano, Choice

"Men Speak Out...demonstrates the need for a sense of community for work working to be active allies - especially if the alternative is to tune out and continue actively complying with domination."

-- Feminist Collections, Fall 2008

Product Description

Men Speak Out is a collection of essays written by and about pro-feminist men. In the essays, which feature original, lively and accessible prose, anti-sexist men make sense of their gendered experiences in today¡¯s culture.

The authors tackle the issues of feminism, growing up male, recognizing masculine privilege, taking action to change the imbalance of power and privilege and the constraints that men experience in confronting sexism. They describe their successes and challenges in bucking patriarchal systems in a culture that can be unsupportive of - or downright hostile to - a pro-feminist perspective.

In these chapters, a diverse group of men reflect on growing up, share moments in their day-to-day lives, and pose serious questions about being a pro-feminist male living, working, thinking, and learning in a sexist society.
