Shira Tarrant aims to show once and for all that men can be feminists too... Kudos to the author for this blame-free book that encourages readers to embrace equality--and provides precise, simple steps to get [there]. --Bust Magazine
[Men and Feminism] is brief, it's engaging, and it doesn't mince words in explaining exactly what feminism has to offer men, and why they should get behind it. --Bitch Magazine
[Men and Feminism] is refreshingly...attentive to economic and political relations of injustice and structures of gender power... Men and Feminism raises the bar for well-intentioned men. --Michael Flood, Men and Masculinities
Drawing from significant intersectional, antisexist, and antiracist theory, [Men and Feminism] is an informative introduction to feminism in general and to how men stand to gain from it in particular. --For Your Bookshelf, Association of American Colleges and Universities
Shira Tarrant isn't afraid to go into unexpected territory ... [This book] discusses the history of men in feminism, but also analyzes conversations about gender and masculinity while providing resources for men interested in feminist actions. --Allison McCarthy, Womanist Musings

"...research on university campuses reveals that a lot of men privately disagree with sexism and misogyny, but far fewer are willing to come forward in public with their feminist, egalitarian opinions."
I have often seen this in groups of men. This is a great book and easy to read.
Considering historical and cultural context, Tarrant gives due credit to men who are challenging the confines of traditional masculinity. What I like best about Men and Feminism is that it is incredibly readable and engaging, thoroughly researched and informative without being overly didactic. Anecdotes and opinions from regular men and feminist allies are included throughout the book, a reminder that the voices of men are fundamental to this critical dialogue, as ultimately all the facts and theories are actually about men and women's real lives and experiences. This is an essential introduction to an important ongoing discussion within feminism. Interesting, insightful, and, most importantly, accessible, Men and Feminism is a must-read for academics, activists, feminists, and just about everyone else.
