The Will to Change: Men, Masculinity, and Love (book)
“What the world needs now is liberated men who are 'empathetic and strong, autonomous and connected, responsible to self, to family and friends, to society, and capable of understanding how those responsibilities are, ultimately, inseparable.' Men need feminist thinking. It is the theory that supports their spiritual evolution and their shift away from the patriarchal model. Patriarchy is destroying the well-being of men, taking their lives daily.”
Powerful words by bell hooks in her book The Will to Change: Men, Masculinity, and Love.
The words of bell hooks are sharp, direct, and unfiltered.
Interesting to realize how this book, which came to my hands a few days ago, I would probably have rejected read it some years back.
It contains many uncomfortable truths and reminders that my journey is still bumpy and windy ahead.
