Emancipator works towards changing the social norms for men and masculinity. In order to achieve gender equality, men also need to change. Men’s emancipation is about the contributions of men to the emancipation of women and about the liberation of men from traditional masculinity.
In short, feminism needs men for a better world, and men need feminism for a better life.
To look at men’s emancipation from a different angle is to look at the role of men and masculinity and how they can contribute to, and benefit from, greater gender equality. Traditional standards of masculinity cause problems for men themselves and for others and the world. All kinds of personal and social problems can be traced back to strict ideas about what it means to be a man, from the division of labour and care, paternity, education and relationships, to sexuality, violence, diversity and physical and mental health.
Emancipator works on men’s emancipation around various themes: violence and safety, work and care, sexual and gender diversity, and sexuality.
