XXXVI Gender and Economic Policy Discussion Forum

Shifting Masculinities in Contemporary India and Everyday Implications on Gender Inequalities
For free

This online forum is being organised to offer critical reflections on the shifting masculinities within contemporary India and its everyday implications on gender inequalities and gendered marginalizations. The rising ‘toxic masculinity’ and the ‘crisis of hegemonic, patriarchal masculinity’ in contemporary times has made debates around gender, masculinity and power ever more pressing. Masculinity refers to the socially produced but embodied ways of being male, with manifestations including but not limited to manners of speech, behaviour, gestures, social interaction and division of tasks ‘proper’ to men and women (Srivastava 2012).
