Masculinities, care and equality : identity and nurture in men's lives
Masculinities, Care and Equality explores men's ambiguous relationship with intimate caring work within a context where carefree and nurturing expectations for men are competing for influence. For men, the desire to be more involved carers often clashes with the commonly valued expectations of them as men and this book provides an in-depth, qualitative exploration of a diverse range of male perspectives on the role of love and care in their lives, examining how different men position themselves when confronted by this contradictory expectation.
