Summary of Why Gender Equality Is Good for Everyone – Men Included
Some men still feel threatened by the idea of gender equality. Fear not! It benefits both sexes.
When he was a graduate student, sociologist Michael Kimmel realized that as a middle-class white man, he had naively worn blinders regarding issues of race, class and gender. He learned that “privilege is invisible to those who have it.” Three decades later, he lectures about the benefits of gender equality for women and men alike. getAbstract believes this witty, provocative talk will engage members of both sexes in the gender equality debate.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why recognizing gender inequality is the first step toward reducing it
- Why some men resist the idea of gender equality
- How gender equality benefits everyone
