Emancipation of Men: Masculinity at the Crossroads

Join us for the first event in the BroadAgenda Public Talks Series 2020, for what promises to be a rich, robust and rollicking discussion!

About this Event

Rolling Stone recently declared the 2010s as the “decade of bad men” – ten years in which toxic masculinity became part of the zeitgeist - while The Australian claimed that men have been “psychologically castrated by the gender equality movement”.

What does masculinity look like in the 2020s?

Have we, in our quest for gender equality, done more harm than good? So, what does it mean to be a man in the modern world? Come and challenge our panel.

BGL at the University of Canberra is proud to host the BroadAgenda Talk Series panel discussion: Emancipation of Men: Masculinity at the Crossroads.
