Be A Man

by Chris Hemmings
£12.99   paperback  Biteback Publishing (2017)

Be A Man by Chris Hemmings For decades women have shone the spotlight on equality and asked why they’re treated like second-class citizens. They’ve understandably demanded freedoms, rights and legal protections and, while they’ve slowly won some battles, it has been far too long and been far too arduous.
 
But why is that? Why have generations of men blocked their march towards equality and what impact has it had? Journalist , broadcaster and former ‘lad’ Chris Hemmings sets out to explore why so few men ask such probing questions of their own sex.
 
How do we raise sweet young boys to become aggressive? Why do so few fathers take parental leave? Why do men rape so many people every year? Why do we still judge success on financial prowess? Why are three times as many men killing themselves as women? In short, how does our masculine determination to be dominant not only impact on the women and girls in our lives, but also the men and boys.
 
The answer to all these questions, and more, can be determined by discovering what, in 2017, it really means to Be A Man.
