Where do we learn about masculinity? Both boys and girls are taught from an early age what their family and society expects of the masculine and feminine.
We will explore the role of masculinity in the context of culture, religion, and a generation’s time in history. We will examine the relationship between class expectations, economics and social constructs. We will investigate the rituals of when, if and how we overtly teach boys to be men. We will unpack internalized rules of masculinity and through a personal journey of self-evaluation, we’ll determine what is healthy and what we want to change for ourselves, for our relationships with others and in our lives as a whole.
