Men's rights, gender, and social media

Christa Hodapp.
Summary
Men's Rights, Gender, and Social Media examines the contemporary men's rights movement (MRM), a mainly online movement that claims men are oppressed by gender norms, women, and feminism. While some feminists and other progressives have dismissed the movement as simple mysogyny, Christa Hodapp argues that the MRM expresses a growing cultural trend in male anger and frustration, and that it is an extreme manifestation of what has been previously referred to as a "masculinity crisis." In order to assess the implications of the MRM for gender politics, this book explores the movement politically, investigating the ways in which online communication and media outlets have impacted contemporary meanings of identity, gender, language, and political engagement. Furthermore, Hodapp discusses various issues promoted by the MRM - such as parenting, divorce, employment, and violence. These deeper insights into the issues surrounding masculinity and gender politics in current sociopolitical contexts will be of great value to students and scholars of feminist philosophy, gender studies, political theory, media studies, and social movements. -- from back cover.
