3 3 Neoliberalism & masculinity Turn to private Responsibility Complementarity Culturalist A time of crisis 3 Much more important for the defence of gender inequality are movements in which mens interests are a side effectnationalist, ethnic, religious, and economic movements. Of these, the most inuential on a world scale is contemporary neoliberalism. - RW Connell

4 4 Neoliberalism & masculinity Turn to private Responsibility Complementarity Culturalist A time of crisis 4 GAD for women is robustly materialist, concentrating on social relations particularly as they dene rights and responsibilities in work, consumption and households…. GAD for men is by contrast much more individualistic and personal, much more preoccupied with the self. - Sarah White

5 5 Neoliberalism & masculinity Turn to private Responsibility Complementarity Culturalist A time of crisis 5 [It] will require not just the liberation of women, but also the liberation of men – in their thinking, attitudes, and willingness to take a fairer share of the responsibilities and work-loads that women carry on their shoulders. [...] And action must begin at home. - James Wolfensohn

6 6 Neoliberalism & masculinity Turn to private Responsibility Complementarity Culturalist A time of crisis 6 By the late 90s male inclusion had become a dening feature of successful gender policy. Men were framed as unreliable policy problems who failed to adhere to a complementary model of good partnership. Men are being included in gender lending to help reprivatize caring labor as women move into paid work. - Kate Bedford

12 12 Liberatory work on masculinity The 4 Rs of feminism State & its Institutions intersections Communities of interest Realities of trauma Beyond the Binary 12 Class, race, national, regional, and generational differences cross-cut the category men, spreading the gains and costs of gender relations very unevenly among men. There are many situations where groups of men may see their interest as more closely aligned with the women in their communities than with other men. - RW Connell
