Summary
Journalist Phil Barker unpacks the myth of the 'Man Box' and Australian masculinity. The performance of being a man, from the moment we open our eyes, until we gasp our last breath, is damaging us, and those around us. Phil Barker has written thousands of words about being a man in these strange and terrible times. As a journalist, he has spent years investigating the modern epidemics of suicide, domestic violence, pornography and misogyny, but also the essential bonds of male friendship, fatherhood and men's relationships with women. During this time, Phil found himself seeing what it is to 'be a man' in a completely new light. Men are forced into a performance of masculinity that is suffocating, limiting and damaging. The Revolution of Man shows us how to rethink what it means to be a man and urges men to reconnect with their emotions so they, and the people they love, can start leading happier, healthier and more meaningful lives
Summary
Most men live in 'Man Box', where they are expected to be tough, strong, stoic, silent, enduring, non-communicative the list goes on. The Man Box and those learned qualities are the wellspring for suicide, domestic violence and will even bar men from the jobs of the future. Entertaining, moving and utterly crucial, The Revolution of Man urges men to jump out of the Man Box, reconnect with their emotions, and start living satisfying and happy lives.
