It examines the role of changing masculinities in creating equality and\/or reinforcing inequality by analysing diverse mens movements, their politics, and the identities they (re)construct. Jordan advances a typology for categorising mens movements (\'feminist\', \'postfeminist\', and \'backlash movements) and addresses debates over the construction of \'masculinity-in-crisis, arguing that \'crisis is frequently invoked in problematic ways. These themes are further explored through original analyses of material produced by \'feminist, \'postfeminist, and \'backlash mens groups. The main empirical contribution of the book draws on interviews with fathers rights activists to explore the (gendered) implications of the \'new politics of fatherhood. The nuanced examination of fathers rights perspectives reveals multiple, complex narratives of masculinity, fatherhood, and gender politics. The cumulative effect of these is, at best, postfeminist and depoliticising, and, at worst, another vitriolic \'backlash. The New Politics of Fatherhood expands scholarly understandings of gender, masculinities, and social movements in the under-researched UK context, and will appeal to readers with interests in these areas.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"1.
