Over forty years ago, in partnerships with the Oakland Men’s Project, author and activist Paul Kivel conceptualized “the act like a man box” putting into motion a central frame for the healthy masculinity movement. In this interview, Kivel talks about his history in men’s work and his regrets about what remains to be done. Namely, collective action and a broader response to all forms of oppression. Paul Kivel is a powerful moral voice and a founding father of the healthy masculinity movement. Reach out to Paul and find his books at PaulKivel.com.
Join us for powerful conversations with the men and women leading the healthy masculinity movement. For generations, our culture has taught us a narrow and limiting set of rules for how to be a man. The end result? Epidemic levels of isolation and violence for boys and men and for the multitude of others whose lives we impact.
But we can make a different choice. We can choose a masculinity of connection and in return have healthier relationships, and more meaningful, lasting lives.
