Project description

This project aims to integrate feminist history and masculinity studies in an intellectual and social history of the involvement of men in the feminist movement. The correlation between the personal and the political is placed at the heart of the gender analysis of male feminist identities, through the study of individual (intellectual) trajectories and transnational networks of a sample of European feminist men.
