Review of Gender Oppression: A Bloke’s Perspective on the Struggled for Gender Equality

As I mentioned yesterday, this book brings up a lot of interesting points on the state men. It’s not about manhood, as many articles that I see are. It’s about men and men’s issues, though the author doesn’t identify as an MRA either. He explains why at the end. He is a masculist, which is a person who wants the rights of men to be equal to the rights of women.

He brings up several points where he believes men to be disadvantaged in modern Western society and then he backs it up with statistics. He also takes special care to not sound misogynistic and to both acknowledge and condemn misogynist behavior.  Then he brings it all home at the end with what can be done on an individual level to improve the status of men in our communities. I won’t spoil it, but you all know how much I love an individualistic approach to making changes that we want to see.

He is the change. He invites you to be a part of it too.

If you are at all interested in actual equality among the genders, I encourage you to take a look at it.

 

Note: If you saw this posted last week, I apologize. It wasn’t ready yet and I mistakenly scheduled it for too early a time.
