Masculinities 101 Week in Review

22 Mar

Missed important reads on gender equity and masculinities this week? We’ve got you covered:

Here at Masculinities 101 this week, Peter Rauch discussed masculinities in gaming culture.  The question of masculinities in gaming culture was also taken up this week by Dennis Scimeca at arstechnica in his article “How to break games out of the man box”.

Also here at Masculinities 101, Anna Sofie Bach wrote about the ways in which gender politics in Denmark continue to manifest masculinities that are harmful to men and women.

PreventConnect, a project of the California Coalition Against Sexual Assault, posted a podcast discussing an important new film, My Masculinity Helps.

Washington DC City Councilmembers formally introduced the Fair Leave Act of 2014 for consideration.  This act would provide both men and women with up to 6 weeks of paid parental leave; a radically important step towards more involved fatherhood!

Finally, UN Women, the United Nations organization dedicated to gender equality and women’s empowerment, announced a new campaign, HeforShe, which recognizes the important role have to play in efforts for gender justice and calls for men all over the world to speak out against gender inequalities.
