What did you miss last week in the realm of masculinities and gender equity news? We’ll tell ya!
This week Masculinities 101 hosted the second installment of Clay Darcy’s pub crawl narrative “drinking Down Masculinity.” In this series Darcy shows us just how much a gender lens can add to the way we see even the most everyday experiences.
On Thursday, The Guardian hosted a live Q&A session on how the development sector can engage men and boys toward gender equality. The panel included leaders of NGOs all over the world that are doing this important work.
The Shriver Report partnered with The Good Men Project to produce a list of what they believe to be the top 10 issues affecting men in 2014. Check out their list and let us know if you agree. Is there anything missing? Is there anything there that you think isn’t really an issue?
Also, a few weeks ago we briefly discussed the backlash against New York Mets player Daniel Murphy taking paternity leave. As you may recall, two New York sports talk-show hosts suggested that his wife should have scheduled a pre-emptive C-section rather than the player missing any games. But, this week, that scandal has led to a deeper discussion of paternity leave. You can find some of that discussion on Slate and on Ordinary Times.
