From the Publisher

In just one generation, age-old ideas about women have been swept aside . . . but what does that have to do with men? Authors Michael Kaufman and Michael Kimmel, two of the world’s leading male advocates of gender equality, believe it has everything to do with themand that it’s crucial to educate men about feminism in order for them to fully understand just how important and positive these changes have been for them.

Kaufman and Kimmel address these issues in The Guy’s Guide to Feminism. Hip and accessible, it contains nearly a hundred entriesfrom Autonomy” to Zero”written in varying tones (humorous, satirical, irreverent, thoughtful, and serious) and in many forms (top ten” lists, comics, interviews, mini-stories, and more). Each topic celebrates the ongoing gains that are improving the lives of women and girlsand what that really means for men.

Informal and fun yet substantive and intelligent, The Guy’s Guide to Feminism illustrates how understanding and supporting feminism can help men live richer, fuller, and happier lives.

Millennials Are All for Gender Equality — but Men, Less so Than Women

When it comes to women's place in the world, a new study says millennials men's views may not be as progressive as we'd like to think. Heartening, we know. Research from the Council on Contemporary Families shows that despite Americans' overall "tremendous increase" in support for gender equality, men ages 18 to 25 have some antiquated ideas about women's role in domestic life. After 2000, the number of men belonging to that age group began to agree more strongly with the idea that it's "much better for everyone involved" if the man is the breadwinner and the woman is the caregiver in a househ

Eventually, as the PUA community drifted onto Reddit, members began to spend less time sharing seduction techniques and more time lodging bilious grievances against women. PUAs advocated a practiced machismo that would teach beleaguered males to combat a “feminized” society that sought to neuter them. When Donald Trump won the presidency, manospher
