In just one generation, age-old ideas about women have been swept aside . . . but what does that have to do with men? Authors Michael Kaufman and Michael Kimmel, two of the world s leading male advocates of gender equality, believe it has everything to do with themand that it s crucial to educate men about feminism in order for them to fully understand just how important and positive these changes have been for them. Kaufman and Kimmel address these issues in The Guy s Guide to Feminism. Hip and accessible, it contains nearly a hundred entriesfrom Autonomy to Zero Tolerance written in varying tones (humorous, satirical, irreverent, thoughtful, and serious) and in many forms ( top ten lists, comics, interviews, mini-stories, and more). Each topic celebrates the ongoing gains that are improving the lives of women and girlsand what that really means for men. Informal and fun yet substantive and intelligent, The Guy s Guide to Feminism illustrates how understanding and supporting feminism can help men live richer, fuller, and happier lives."show more

Review quote

Everyone knows feminists have no sense of humor!" Jian Ghomeshi, host of Q on CBC radio and TV "The Guy's Guide to Feminism is the book for guys on how to be more authentic and fight for a more just world." Courtney Martin, editor of "Feminism touches everyone, everyday. Kaufman and Kimmel guide us through a conversation that is imperative in our societyand they do it with clarity and humor." Don McPherson, College Football Hall of Fame Quarterback, now social educator "show more
