Men Engaging Feminisms is about men's responses to feminist reforms in schooling. It documents the various masculinity politics which have emerged in response to feminisms. It analyses the playing out of such politics in educational systems, in both policy and practice. Men's responses to feminisms in education have become closely intertwined with the 'what about the boys?' backlash. This and other forms of backlash are deconstructed. Written by two men from a pro-feminist perspective, Men Engaging Feminisms seeks to open up a dialogue about schooling and changing gender relations and changing gender order while also desiring to contribute to a more equal gender order in the future.
