Blog : Men and Feminism / Hommes et Féminisme

Voici un blog d'intérêt qui traite des questions entourant les hommes et le féminisme.  Voici ce qu'on peut lire à ce sujet sur la page d'accueil : 

"Men speaking as feminists is controversial. Discussions over feminism as an experiential as well as activist politics raises a fundamental question: if men do not experience what it means to be a 'woman' are they/should they be able to speak from the position of a feminist? There is no easy answer to this question. 

Some suggest that men can be 'pro-feminist' if they have well-developed feminist values/consciousness but lack the experience to identify as a feminist, while others suggest that men can be feminist if they subscribe to a language of gender equality. Neither answer, however, adequately deals with what is at stake in definitions of feminism that rely on experience as opposed to intellectual values. More discussion is needed to think about the different languages of feminism, and whether the category of 'woman' or even that of 'man' is ever a stable ground to articulate a position of politics from. Can men identify as feminists? Or only as 'pro-feminist'? Is there a difference?"
