Call for Submissions: Men Speak out: Views on Gender, Sex, and Power (Routledge) revised second edition How can we better understand and imagine men and feminism?
Deadline: March 30, 2012
How can we better understand and imagine new possibilities for men and feminism? Are you a guy who hates sexism? Do you call yourself a feminist? Have you spent hours over coffee (or beer or on blogs) debating issues of gender, power, race, class, and sexuality? Are you involved with social justice activism? Have you grappled with accountability, imperfection, and social change? If so, then you have stories to tell and I’d like to hear what you have to say.

“I am collecting essays for a revised second edition of “Men Speak out: Views on Gender, Sex, and Power.” I’m interested in first-person accounts of growing up male and identifying with — or questioning the ideals of feminism. Stories about pivotal moments in personal or poltiical chagne are especially welcome. You don’t have to call yourself a feminist to have a relevant story. There are so many directions your essay can take, but I am NOT looking for an academic essay. No citations, not footnotes. I AM looking fo thought-provoking stories written in your own language you actually use when you talk with your friends.”
