Now Masculinity is in Crisis

Sharing core norms and values
Posted Jan 08, 2018 | Chatham House, Jackson Katz

Technological, geopolitical, religious and other systemic and historical changes disrupt gender hierarchies and social structures and establish new gender norms and identities. In this article for Chatham House, Jackson Katz suggest that men in the Global North feel left behind when jobs have moved to low-wage countries or been displaced by automation, leaving them unable to sustain the living standard of their parents’ generation. These men, typically white, and middle or working class, experience an existential crisis, a personal and sometimes political struggle to hold on to old definitions of manhood and the structures that sustained them.
