Voice Male: The Untold Story of the Pro-Feminist Men's Movement takes you inside one of the most important social justice movements you may never have heard ofóthe social transformation of masculinity. Although itís been underway since the late 1970s, it still largely remains under the radar of much of society.
Thematically arranged essays by leading experts and moving first-person stories illustrate how a growing movement of changing men has discovered in feminism the basis for redefining masculinity and creating healthier lives.
The longtime editor of Voice Male magazine, Rob Okun, introduces readers to men examining contemporary manhood from a variety of perspectivesófrom boys on the journey to manhood to men overcoming violence; from fatherhood and mentoring to navigating life as a man of color; as a gay man, and as a survivor. The voices of a chorus of women can also be heard in these pages.
Long recognized for articulating a hopeful vision of the future of men, Okun sensitively presents a vivid portrait sure to be accessible to a wide audience interested in what is happening with men. His many years as a gender justice activist have not just deepened his skill as a chronicler of the profeminist menís movement but also helped to strengthen his voice as a spokesperson articulating menís second act. Voice Male offers compelling evidence of a new direction for men and illuminates whatís around the bend on the path to gender justice.
