Product Description

The Second Sexism: Discrimination Against Men and Boys draws attention to the "second sexism," where it exists, how it works and what it looks like, and responds to those who would deny that it exists. Challenging conventional ways of thinking, it examines controversial issues such as sex-based affirmative action, gender roles, and charges of anti-feminism. The book offers an academically rigorous argument in an accessible style, including the careful use of empirical data, and includes examples and engages in a discussion of how sex discrimination against men and boys also undermines the cause for female equality.

Author Bio

Editorial Reviews

“I recommend The Second Sexism to scholars whoinvestigate gender relations, and I urge academic feminists to takeBenatar’s thesis seriously and to respond to it with respectrather than with disbelief or derision.”  (AmericanPhilosophical Association's Newsletter on Feminism andPhilosophy, 1 May 2013)

“This book simply must be read . . . . Highly, highlyrecommended.”  (Mens News Daily, 4 January2013)

“The Second Sexismis well researched, with voluminousreferences. As such, it serves the useful function of raisingconsciousness about an important social issue. Benatar’sresearch makes a strong case for an in-depth examination of theinjustices and discriminations that men suffer in this and othersocieties in the 21st century.” (PsycINFO/PsycCRITIQUES, 21 November 2012)

“The Second Sexism is a strong and early step on the way tothe awareness, amelioration, and treatment of a widespread andunaddressed problem that affects a not insignificant portion of thehuman population.”  (New Male Studies Review 3,Jonathan Badiali's, 26 September 2012)

“Benatar’s analysis brings much needed clarity tocontemporary debates in gender studies, whose discourse runs therisk of becoming stagnant and dogmatic against a constantlychanging social backdrop. Benatar does well to remind us that it isnot only females who are constrained and disadvantaged by the rolesthat they have been socially encouraged to take up.” (New Male Studies Review 2, J.P. Messina's, 26September 2012)

“And now, thanks to Professor Benatar, we have anincisive, comprehensive discussion of the phenomenon that feminismhas unwittingly brought to the forefront . . . The writing isjargon-free. As a philosopher, Professor Benatar is attentive toconceptual nuance and clear, precise usage.”  (NewMale Studies Review 1, Miles Groth's, 26 September2012)

“This is a very well-argued book that presents anunorthodox thesis and defends it ably.  It would be a usefultext in both undergraduate and graduate courses in philosophy andgender studies, where it is certain to arouse a lot of discussion,much of it excited.  Since it is very clearly written, andwould be interesting and accessible also to the educatedlayperson.  Most importantly, however, it is likely to changeour understanding of gender relations.” (Metapsychology, 21 August 2012)
