We invite you to join authors Jeffrey Boakye and Darren Chetty to celebrate the publication of What Is Masculinity? Why Does It Matter? And Other Big Questions. Published by Wayland, this book is the latest in the 'Big Questions' series of books created by Michael Rosen.

Darren and Jeffrey will be joined by contributors Fen Coles, Salena Godden, Bréanainn Lambkin, Dave Pickering, Iesha Small and Andy Williams.

Masculinity is being discussed more than ever before, in a range of contexts. People talk about 'toxic masculinity', claim that there is a 'crisis in masculinity' or argue that we need to 'reclaim masculinity'. There have always been many ways of being a man, and many people who have claimed that there are correct and incorrect ways of being a man. This important and timely book looks at the big questions surrounding definitions of masculinity and discusses where ideas of masculinity have come from and the effects of gender stereotyping. The authors and contributors share their experiences of and perspectives on masculinity and invite readers to think for themselves about the issues involved.
