An Educator’s Tool and an Activist’s Resource
For more than three decades, Voice Male
has chronicled the social transformation of masculinity. Beginning as a newsletter for one of the earliest men’s centers in North America, Voice Male
evolved into a magazine exploring critical
issues relevant to men’s growth and health while cataloguing the damaging effects of men’s isolation and violence. Following in the feminist footsteps of women who sparked the gender justice movement, Voice Male
assists men and boys on the
journey to an egalitarian manhood championing gender justice for all.
In its pages readers will discover a chorus of men’s voices—fathers,
father figures and mentors; men of color; activist men; gay, bisexual, questioning, and trans men; and younger men. The voices of women ring clear and true in Voice Male
, inspirational allies who have led the way in advocating and agitating
for gender equality.
