From houses of parliament to corporate board rooms, politics is framed by powerful notions of manhood and organised in large part through men’s relations with other men. Elections and public policies often are contests over the performance of particular forms of masculinity. As recent events have shown, right-wing and fundamentalist movements and communities draw support and strength from appeals to masculine values. At the same time, there are growing efforts by feminist movements, civil society organizations, and governments to engage men in building gender equality, and an increasingly visible conversation about new, healthy forms of masculinity. This event will explore the interconnections of masculinities, power and politics around the world, and the public and institutional policies that can have a positive and transformative impact through engaging men as allies with women in the gender equality revolution.
