Overview

In just seventy-five brief pages, Good Men Project Senior Editor Mark Greene exposes the brutal price that man box culture extracts from men and women world wide. The Little #MeToo Book for Men is a concise, no holds barred call to action, inviting men to step out of silence and isolation and into the battle for a better future.

From the introduction:
"For millions of men, manhood can seem like a foregone conclusion, mapped out for us by universally understood rules for being a 'real man.' These rules determine how we walk, how we talk, what we think and do, what we view as our responsibilities and most importantly, how we pursue or fail to pursue our deepest needs, wants and desires.

These rules of manhood become so central to what we believe as to render the distinction between ourselves and our culture of manhood invisible to us.

When millions of men live our lives subject to the rules of a culture we are not fully conscious of, it can be damaging for our families, our communities, our collective quality of life, and even our longevity. The Little #MeToo Book for Men seeks to encourage a conversation about how boys and men arrive at what we believe.

If this conversation can reveal even the slightest glimmer of daylight between our dominant culture of masculinity and our own daily choices as men, my hope is we will find, in that space, a more vibrant and authentic connection to our agency, our power and our humanity."

Mark Greene's articles on fatherhood, men and emotional expression have received over half a million social media shares and twenty million page views. Greene writes and speaks on men's issues for the Good Men Project, the Shriver Report, the New York Times, Salon, the BBC and the Huffington Post. Follow him on Twitter @RemakingManhood

"The Little #MeToo Book for Men is a profoundly empathetic guide for men who are navigating a culture that pressures them to bury their humanity. This book is nothing short of a blueprint for men's liberation."
- Caroline Heldman, Ph.D.Executive Director of The Representation Project

"Greene has compiled his thoughts, perspectives, and masculinity research in a manner that would be helpful for anyone that truly wishes to equip boys and men for a better life. Specifically, it's highly recommended for school and college administrators, coaches, counselors, and therapists."
-Byron A. Hughes, Ph.D.Dean of Students, Virginia Tech

"The Little #MeToo Book for Men is an excellent resource. It offers insight into our collective socialization and how we can break out of the Man Box to promote healthy manhood and help prevent all forms of violence and discrimination against all women and girls."
-Tony Porter, founder of A CALL TO MEN

On its surface, this book is about helping men understand the #metoo movement and women standing up against rape, sexual assault, and gender-based violence. It offers a great discussion about why this movement makes some men uncomfortable and why men may feel they cannot speak out as well. Far too many men carry struggle and pain of their own. Mark Greene does an excellent job of framing this culture. He offers a pathway forward. He writes that a shift positively impacting male culture is the mechanism by which these societal power struggles (playing out too often as violence) start to lessen. His arguments are very compelling and powerful. I have recommended this book multiple times this week along. I think it should be encouraged reading for all, but especially men in leadership trying to understand the culture shift happening around them.
