I am currently doing a thesis on "how literature and its textual conventions influence and shape gender roles and impact on one's perception of male gender". I would be very interested to receive any feedback on this topic as its an area of particular interest to me. Also, I am looking at ways of introducing alternative models of being to boys in school...making them aware of gender equity etc. Looking forward to hearing from you, Yours sincerely, Fionnuala

Thanks for your note to Feminist.com and the very short answer to your question is to read Susan Faludi's brand new book Stiffed, which is all about masculinity in culture, men, boys, etc....It's chock-full of good research. Also, look through our Pro-Feminist Men's Groups section for organizations that are working with men/boys.
