Editorial Reviews

Review

"...talk about amazing voices! Tarrant has collected bite-sized first-person narratives of men who identify as feminists speaking insightfully, often movingly, on a range of issues..." —Michael A. Messner, Univeristy of Southern California, Signs

"Instead of wasting energy on the questions of who is and is not allowed within the land of feminism, Tarrant offers a survey of those who live and work within the movement by their own determination...Men Speak Out succeeds on two fronts: by expanding the concept of 'We' in feminism and by offering those young men who are increasingly appearing in gender studies classes a chance to read their own voices, and see themselves as 'We'." —Keely Savoie, Bitch Magazine

"Men Speak Out is an important book for feminism...This book provides something important in reframing the old debates about women's rights, especially in this supposedly post-feminist time." —Mandy Van Deven, Feminist Review 

"One of the best things about these essays is that they are so approachable. While you might not agree with every single writer, you don't have to worry about being offended or patronized. This collection represents a wide spectrum of ideas, but they are all presented in a respectful, articulate manner...Men Speak Out is an important text for feminist scholars and the general public." Allyson Whipple, BitchBuzz Review

"...a well-written, engrossing collection that adds even more male voices to the ever-growing body of literature on men and masculinity" J.R. Mitrano, Choice

"Men Speak Out...demonstrates the need for a sense of community for work working to be active allies - especially if the alternative is to tune out and continue actively complying with domination."

Format: Paperback
This collection of essays is an essential addition to the feminist discourse. It includes essays that speak to the issues at the forefront of the socio political change that feminist analysis invites. I am so glad that such an important subject has been tackled by such an incredible thinker.

I love Men Speak Out! I teach Women's and Gender Studies and this book has been essential in introducing students to masculinity studies. It features diverse voices and accessible writing that immediately pulls you in. Highly recommended for educators, students, and anyone who believes that feminism is not just for--or about--women.

Interesting book because it's all other dudes thoughts on the topic. The essays are all very different, and that makes it an engaging collection. I got one for my sister as well!

Format: Paperback
Really important book. Smart, relevant, unique, and a great read. Should be part of every feminist curriculum - gender studies is not complete without men's voices. This book is an invaluable contribution to the conversation, and Tarrant's editing skills shine through in the selection of authors and the focused dialogue. Highly recommend.

Format: Paperback
I'm a man, I was raised by a lesbian feminist, and I found this book absolutely fascinating. Also, I went to see a live event based around this book, if it ever comes to a town near you, do yourself a favor and go see it. Thought provoking, inspirational, this book will make you question many of the basic assumptions you have about manhood in men. This point in history, I think that's a good thing
