For the Love of Men
St. Martin's Griffin
Quatrième de couverture:
"Traditional masculinity is both rewarded and sanctioned. Men grow up being told that boys don't cry and dolls are for girls (a newer phenomenon than you might realize - gendered toys came back in vogue as recently as the 1980s). They learn they must hide their feelings and anxieties, that they must be the breadwinners, the romantic pursuers. This traps men into rigid standards for their emotions and behavior, nad, at worst, encourages violence and a lack of accountability.
In For the Love of Men, Liz Plank offers a smart, insightful, and deeply researched guide to healing men from toxic ideals of masculinity. For women looking to guide the men in their lives and for men who want to do better and just don't know how, For the Love of Men will lead the conversation."
