  • Introduction: Undressing Patriarchy and Masculinities to
           Re‐politicise Gender
    • Authors: Jerker Edström; Abhijit Das, Chris Dolan
      Pages: 1 - 10
      Abstract: Much has happened in debates, practice and policy on gender in development since the millennium, when an IDS Bulletin was first published on ‘Men, Masculinities and Development’. The present issue picks up on several developments in the interim, by drawing contributions from participants at a recent international symposium, ‘Undressing Patriarchy’. It explores the shifting field of men and masculinities in development and how the field's often conflicted engagements with the feminist project of redressing gender inequalities might be radicalised through a deeper analysis of patriarchy and our relationship to it, as well as by linking it to other struggles for sexual and human rights, or social justice. The introduction sets the context and gives a brief background to our rationale for ‘undressing patriarchy’ as our chosen approach. The authors then comment on the contributions to each section of the IDS Bulletin, and conclude with an outline of some future priorities.

  • ‘Money has More Weight than the Man’: Masculinities in the
           Marriages of Angolan War Veterans
    • Authors: John Spall
      Pages: 11 - 19
      Abstract: This article discusses how male Angolan war veterans navigated the sudden shift from the rigours of military discipline to life in a civilian society they no longer recognised, where money had become a dominant social value. Based on a year of participant observation and interviews with war veterans in the city of Huambo, it traces their life histories and their post‐war struggles to develop the necessary creativity and initiative to make a profit in a disordered, war‐torn economy, where masculine status and authority had come to depend crucially on monetary income. I analyse their reaction to the crumbling of the relative certainties of the patriarchal orders of both pre‐war society and military life, and the associated anxieties around living up to a senior masculine archetype of the wise, authoritative provider whilst attempting to ensure that their wives’ behaviour conformed to the family model that accompanies this archetype.

  • Poor Man's Patriarchy: Gender Roles and Global Crises
    • Authors: Alexandra Kelbert; Naomi Hossain
      Pages: 20 - 28
      Abstract: This article argues that rapid recent global economic shocks have revealed a poor man's patriarchy – a washed‐out version of ancient male privileges, but yoked to responsibilities poor men can rarely meet. At the same time, norms that helped keep women at home in unpaid care roles have weakened and paid work is an ambition for more and more. Drawing on original research into experiences of food price volatility in ten developing countries in 2012, this article argues that in this destabilising of old gender roles, there may be some emancipatory potential. Present conditions of poor man's patriarchy suggest some scope for cross‐gender coalitions with progressive, redistributive political agendas.

  • Are Masculinities Changing? Ethnographic Exploration of a Gender
           Intervention with Men in Rural Maharashtra, India
    • Authors: Ahonaa Roy; Abhijit Das
      Pages: 29 - 38
      Abstract: Samajhdar Jodidar is a community‐based intervention with men in rural Maharashtra in India that is aimed at reducing gender disparities at the family and community level. The intervention is based on the results achieved from earlier work done in Uttar Pradesh where ‘role model‐activists’ were found to be a crucial inspiration for gender‐related changes among men. Through participant observations and in‐depth interviews in one village, the article explores the changes that have taken place among men, focusing on the ‘animator’ who has been trained as the role model‐activist. The article compares the changes in the animator with the masculinity of ‘wrestlers’ in two neighbouring villages, who form an idealised masculinity for the region. The article argues that such interventions can lead to substantive improvements in women's status without compromising men's ‘masculinities’.

  • Homophobia and Patriarchy in Nicaragua: A Few Ideas to Start a Debate
    • Authors: Patrick Welsh
      Pages: 39 - 45
      Abstract: Reflecting on a 25‐year‐old study on cultural constructions of same‐sex sexual relations between men in Nicaragua, which described a submissive–dominant – or cochón–cochonero – model, this article contrasts this notion with more recent gay identities that have emerged in urban Nicaragua in particular, and which now coexist alongside the more traditional model. Despite many LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) groups having emerged in the country, patriarchy is proving resilient and adaptive in surprising ways. Although important victories have been achieved on a global and national scale, culturally and legislatively, in relation to equal rights for LGBT people, this article argues that such advances do not necessarily mean that the intensely andocentric character of patriarchy itself has been significantly challenged or altered. In the struggle for equal rights for all, the models and dynamics of patriarchal power and how they manifest themselves within LGBT organisations, families and relations must also be addressed … and undressed.

  • Sex Work Undresses Patriarchy with Every Trick!
    • Authors: Meena Saraswathi Seshu; Aarthi Pai
      Pages: 46 - 52
      Abstract: Some feminists argue that sex work reduces the female body to an object of sexual pleasure to be exploited in the marketplace by any male – an argument consistent with patriarchal notions of protection, reverence and control, the construction of women as a devi [goddess], the dasi [slave] or the veshya [sex worker]. This article addresses our work with collectivising rural women not in sex work (Vidrohi Mahila Manch [Platform for Rebellious Women] (VMM) Sangli) and rural women in sex work (Veshya Anyay Mukti Parishad (VAMP)) from South Maharashtra and North Karnataka, India. It examines the apparent control adult women in sex work have over their own bodies and lives. Although it is true that unless acting collectively, they are less successful in confronting organised criminal gangs and the brutal side of law enforcers, most of them boldly confront sexual relations with individual male clients and men from their own community.

  • The HIV Blind Spot: Men and HIV Testing, Treatment and Care in
           Sub‐Saharan Africa
    • Authors: Tim Shand; Hayley Thomson‐de Boor, Wessel van den Berg, Dean Peacock, Laura Pascoe
      Pages: 53 - 60
      Abstract: Evidence shows that men are significantly underrepresented in HIV and AIDS testing and treatment services – both in sub‐Saharan Africa and globally. HIV policies within sub‐Saharan Africa also have insufficient focus on ensuring national HIV responses encourage men to test, access anti‐retroviral treatment and support the disproportionate burden of HIV care on women. Addressing these challenges is important for everyone's sake and must be approached within a context of addressing power differentials between men and women at all levels. This includes challenging the broader patriarchal power structures in which gender plays out, such as the assumption that care work is ‘women's work’ and therefore less valued, and the rigidity of gender norms that encourage men to participate in risk‐taking behaviours that put their life and the life of those around them in jeopardy.

  • Male Engagement in Deconstructing Institutional Violence in Kenya
    • Authors: Phil Erick Otieno
      Pages: 61 - 68
      Abstract: As violence is a power issue, there is a need to understand the root causes and the manifestations of power relations in all spheres of life. In this regard, it is important to change norms and attitudes, as well as to influence policy and practice in both public and private institutions. This must be buttressed by appreciation of the variety of contextually explicit pathways to change. By interacting with different communities, the intersection between SGBV, HIV and AIDS become apparent. There are men ready to engage in working towards gender equality but who require a secure and non‐threatening platform to facilitate non‐violent reflections and deliberations on numerous gender issues pertinent to their personal lives, family, work and community. In seeking to create a violence‐free society where females and males are valued equally, there is a need to interrogate the structural violence that impedes the attainment of that goal.

  • Changing Men: Challenging Stereotypes. Reflections on Working with Men on
           Gender Issues in India
    • Authors: Abhijit Das; Satish K. Singh
      Pages: 69 - 79
      Abstract: This article describes the journey and lessons of a 12‐year‐long and still ongoing experience of the two authors in working with men at the community level in different parts of India. Starting with addressing domestic violence, the work has proceeded to address issues of power, control and autonomy within the context of deep‐seated cultural beliefs and practices, challenging and changing the roles of men both within homes and outside in different institutions. This work has been spread over a number of ‘projects’, most of which remain interconnected, and currently is spread across a number of states in India. In reviewing the lessons from their practice the authors propose a set of precepts or a ‘theory of change’ for working with men and boys to challenge gender discrimination within the South Asian context. To conclude the article, the authors discuss some of the challenges and predicaments in continuing this work within the current development paradigm.

  • Has Patriarchy been Stealing the Feminists' Clothes?
           Conflict‐related Sexual Violence and UN Security Council Resolutions
    • Authors: Chris Dolan
      Pages: 80 - 84
      Abstract: The UN Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 2106, in June 2013, and the declaration on preventing sexual violence in conflict adopted by G8 in London, in April 2013, signal a possible paradigm shift in how the international community can do ‘gender’, particularly in the arena of conflict‐related sexual violence. Whilst UNSCR 1325 and its successors succeeded in drawing greater attention and funding to the particular needs of some women, they failed in comprehensively responding to the phenomenon of conflict‐related sexual violence. This is largely due to a systematic reluctance to confront the reality of conflict‐related sexual violence against men and boys, coupled with an active complicity in silencing that reality in what effectively reverted to a patriarchal discourse dressed up in feminist clothing. A new and unashamedly gender‐inclusive resolution is required if gender‐based violence (GBV) interventions are to be released from the stifling grip of a patriarchal mode of ‘doing gender’.

  • A Radical Agenda for Men's Caregiving
    • Authors: Gary Barker
      Pages: 85 - 90
      Abstract: The gender equality agenda has long discussed the unequal burden of care work for women and girls. But this debate has seldom focused on how to create the conditions necessary for men and boys to do more care work and be part of a global effort to value care work, regardless of who carries it out. In this analysis of global data and trends, the author argues for a radical shifting of the conversation to understand the resistance to men's care work, the benefits to men of greater participation in care work, and provides a set of policy recommendations for how to promote this change. The article also argues that the benefits of men's caregiving may be the impetus to move from a limited and zero‐sum notion of the ‘patriarchal dividend’ to a ‘gender equality dividend’ with benefits for women, children and men themselves.

  • Gender and Development Cooperation: Scaling up Work with Men and Boys
    • Authors: Paul Dover
      Pages: 91 - 98
      Abstract: Work with men and boys for gender equality and women and girls' empowerment has reached a stage of critical mass within development cooperation. Efforts are now needed to scale up interventions and to embed them in policy and practice. The article is written from the perspective of development bureaucracy and examines the background and the current contexts for work with men and boys and suggests main entry points for future developments.

  • Reflecting on the Oppressor in the Mirror
    • Authors: Marc Peters
      Pages: 99 - 103
      Abstract: Drawing extensively from personal experience, the author explores what it is like to experience patriarchy from the perspective of a person of privilege. He tracks his journey as a young white man coming to terms with the undue privilege that he is afforded on the basis of his race and gender. The article also explores the flaws the author finds in rigid identity politics that hinder collaboration, and attempts to illustrate how people lose and the system wins when activists engage in in‐fighting and cling tightly to narrow definitions of identity. Ultimately, the article makes the case for how shared humanity is a key component in making significant progress in social change efforts and in society as a whole.

  • Towards an Intersectional Approach to Patriarchy: Male Homosociality in an
           American Context
    • Authors: Frank G. Karioris
      Pages: 104 - 110
      Abstract: This article seeks to begin an exploration of the ways that male homosociality can be investigated and talked about using a multidimensional and intersectional lens. In doing this, it puts to the fore an understanding and discussion of patriarchy, while simultaneously situating the discussion amidst current American visions of masculinity. The article aims to provide a further starting point for theorising about men's homosocial relations and the various factors which impact on the nature of these relations and the role that these relations can play in perpetuating or undermining larger social structures which further inequalities. To do this it briefly looks at various elements of these relations, specifically related to power, silence and intimacy.

  • The Male Order Development Encounter
    • Authors: Jerker Edström
      Pages: 111 - 123
      Abstract: In order to more helpfully take the men and masculinities field forward within international development, we must reveal deep patriarchal structures of constraint to gender equality. This article frames an approach, by drawing on feminist thinkers, writers on masculinities and thinkers on power, to propose a set of considerations informing how patriarchy might be analysed in depth. Setting out four dimensions (representational, material, ideological and epistemological) in which to undress patriarchy, the article explores male centredness, male privilege, male supremacy and a concept of ‘male order’. The latter provides both the deep‐level syntax and the inbuilt directionality of patriarchal power structures, through diffuse micro‐technologies of gendered knowledge‐power. The four dimensions are applied to a characterisation of recent policy discourse on the role of men in gender equality, to then conclude with priorities for research and highlighting the need for making the work more explicitly political as well as personal.
