Here is a new book that succeeds in doing nothing less than chronicling the social transformation of masculinity over a three-decade span. Emerging from below the radar of an unobservant media is a growing movement of men who have embraced feminism as the basis to create a new, healthy masculinity. In this collection, longtime editor of 'Voice Male' magazine, Rob Okun, directs a chorus of pro-feminist voices, introducing readers to men examining contemporary manhood from a variety of perspectives: from overcoming violence, fatherhood, and navigating life as a man of color, a gay man, or adolescent. It provides a critical forum for both male survivors and GBTQ men to speak out. Far from being 'the end of men' as some would have it, 'Voice Male' presents the script for men's second act, a time when words like 'compassionate' and 'nurturing' describe men as accurately as do 'competitive' and 'isolated'. This inspired book is evidence of a new direction for men, brightly illuminating the path to gender justice.

Finally a book for women to feel hopeful about men... Rob Okun and contributing writers chronicle a movement of men standing with women in the struggle to end violence against women and girls. This brave book does more than that, revealing an emerging new man culture where men are reclaiming their tears and their hearts as they join women in creating a world where we are all safe and free. --Eve Ensler, playwright of 'The Vagina Monologues'; author of 'I Am an Emotional Creature and In the Body of the World'
This book is a critical tool in dismantling what's oppressive in male culture. --Renner Wunderlich & Margaret Lazarus, producer/directors of the Academy-award winning documentary 'Defending Our Lives, Rape Is, and Rape Culture'
