 Thinking On Sunday: What do Men Want? Masculinity and Its Discontents

Something is definitely up with men. From millions who follow Jordan Peterson to the #MeToo backlash, from Men’s Rights activists and incels to spiralling suicide rates, it’s easy to see that, while men still rule the world, masculinity is in crisis.

How can men and women live together in a world where capitalism and consumerism has replaced the values – family, religion, service and honour – that used to give our lives meaning? Feminism has gone some way towards dismantling the patriarchy, but how can we hold on to the best aspects of our metaphorical Father?

Nina Power unlocks the secrets hidden in our culture to enable men and women to practice playfulness and forgiveness, and reach a true mutual understanding and a lifetime of love.

Nina Power is a writer and philosopher. She has written regularly for the Telegraph, Art Review and the Spectator, amongst other publications. She is the author of One-Dimensional Woman (Zer0, 2009). Her book What Do Men Want? Masculinity and Its Discontents will be available to buy on the day.
