Overview

Masculinity may be what makes men feel like men, but it's also the reason they are more violent, more lonely, and dying younger than women. And while empowering boys and men may not seem like a feminist goal, it could be the key to a more equal society.

For the Love of Men is journalist Liz Plank's first book, inspired off the back of her 2016 TEDx Talk called How to Be a Man, a Woman's Guide. Plank draws on her academic background in gender studies, as well as her work on feminism for outlets like MSNBC, Vox, and Mic.

For the Love of Men is a thoroughly researched guide to masculinity and manhood as we know it today, deconstructing the lies we've long-believed about men. Plank offers a new vision where men no longer need to aspire to the antiquated ideals and traits that hold back equality and progress, while harming themselves in the process.

"We live in a culture that teaches boys stoicism over authenticity, dominance over empathy, and that if they don't follow their script, someone will take notice and take their 'man card' away."
