The Boys Club: Borrowing a Feminist Lens to Critique Men-Only Groups in the Fight against Gender Oppression
Jordan, Nickolas Ashford; Luzader, Jordan
Journal of College and Character, v17 n2 p130-135 2016
Graduation and retention rates for men in higher education are falling while instances of violence against women on campus are rising. This environment has produced a focused effort to stem the tide of violence against women in college and a desire to restore men to previous levels of academic achievement. The authors commend and support these efforts while at the same time questioning the notion that men, by themselves, are capable of counteracting a sexist culture. This work examines the problematic structure of men's only groups in the fight against gender oppression and offers different ways of thinking about supporting men.
