Man Links #9: articles exploring issues around #Mansurvey

On Wednesdays I’m sharing articles and other links that I’ve come across over the last week, which touch on issues that crossover with the #ManSurvey.

(If these aren’t enough links for for you here are the previous posts #1#2#3#4#5, #6#7 and #8. And of course there is also the Further Reading List for the show.)

Please be aware of a general content note: some of these links touch on sexual assault, rape, violence and other aspects of patriarchy:

Just after last week’s blog was posted I became aware of the #MasculinitySoFragile hastag.

This week’s episode of my podcast Getting Better Acquainted is with AJ McKenna and we talk a lot about the #ManSurvey show and about issues around it. She also put out this new poem last week: Sometime’s I Call You Mine which resonates with aspects of the show.

Also I wen’t to a D & D about Gender and Performance organised by GAP Salon. Here is the report and here is the audio from a session I called on “Making work that helps liberate men from patriarchy/masculinity without dominating feminist spaces.”

Guest blog posts and analysis of the survey are still very welcome. And please do get in touch if you use the #ManSurvey as research, as reference, as teaching material or in any other way,  I am really happy to signal boost and link to what you are doing.
