Every once in a while I’m asked to recommend books or other resources for men who are new to feminism and want to learn more. I usually start with bell hooks’ Feminism is for Everybody and follow up with Michael Kaufman and Michael Kimmel’s more recent and more specific book, The Guy’s Guide to Feminism. Now I have a new one to add to the list – one that really explores the diversity of issues and identities of male feminists and pro-feminists: Men Speak Out: Views on Gender, Sex, and Power.

There is so much ground to cover regarding men and masculinity from a feminist perspective, and this book does a good job of covering much of that territory, with sincere insight from men about what it is like to live as a man while recognizing and learning about the complexities of gender and feminism.
hooray shira. this is an accessible, engaging, honest collection of men speaking about gender, sex, and power. they don't have all the answers but it was heart-warming to read about their commitment to ending violence again women. we need our allies.
This book includes 39 essays written by men who identify themselves as feminists. They represent a wide range of masculine identities. The essays forced me to rethink the whole 'can-men-be-feminists?' debate.
Overall, a very engaging collection of stories by and about men and feminism. Topics are vast, but include sex, pornography, male privilege, gay/bi, racism/POC, and masculinity.
I read a lot of feminist books written by women, so it was interesting to get a male take on gender issues.
