Book Talk: Some Men: Feminist Allies and the Movement to End Violence Against Women

The public is invited to a book talk Tal Peretz, co-author of Some Men: Feminist Allies and the Movement to End Violence Against Women, on Thursday, February 9 at 4 p.m. at Pebble Hill.

Some Men explores the history of men's involvement in the feminist anti-violence movement, tracking the rise of activist cohorts, their pathways to anti-violence work, and the sociopolitical contexts of their participation. Grounded in life story interviews with male activists, the book charts the shifting politics of feminist anti-violence work, from the radicalism of the 1970s toward its institutionalization in the 1990s and 2000s. 

Tal Peretz is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Auburn University. For over a decade, Peretz has engaged in and studied men's anti-sexist and anti-violence activism, in an effort to improve the effectiveness of men's work for gender justice and to better understand gender, intersectional inequality, and social movements. In addition to Some Men, his scholarship on men, masculinities, and feminism has been published in academic journals, edited volumes, and popular and activist/professional newsletters. Some Men is co-authored by Mike Messner and Max Greenberg.

The event is free, open to the public, and will be followed by refreshments. Books will be available for purchase and signing. The Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities at Pebble Hill is located at 101 S. Debardeleben Street, Auburn.
