Show Summary Details


This chapter argues that challenges to reproductive masculinity hold implications for the broader ideals of men as fathers, workers, soldiers, and citizens. It analyzes the processes of social change that have led to both challenges to ideals of masculinity as well as resistance to these challenges. The chapter argues that a transformation in gender relations and in the historical inequities that have defined not just reproductive relations but the economic, social, and political roles of men and women requires both recognition of reproductive difference and acknowledgment of the commonalities of men and women.

Keywords: reproductive masculinity; social change; masculinity; gender relations; reproductive relations; reproductive difference
