Reading: Gender Across Borders on Men, Masculinities, and Peacebuilding
The international gender blog Gender Across Borders posted this great post on how systems of oppression are harmful to men as well as women, in that they dehumanise and limite the range of masculine expression. The article also stresses the importance of engaging men to challenge their masculinity for their own empowerment, and not just within the context of being allies to women.
That’s something I really agree with. Read the article and check out the organisations they link to.
