Breaking the rules of the gender game

In an interesting op-ed in The Hindu, Neejra Dasani explores the role of masculinity, and how to include men in the fight for gender justice.  And when men break down their patriarchal mindsets, “We find that all the qualities listed as idealised definitions of masculinity are actually our understanding of what it means to be a decent human being.”  And with that, men can come together with women in a world “in which no one has power over another.”
