Duke University Goes After Men’s ‘Toxic Masculinity’
LIFEZETTE – MICHELE BLOOD
The Duke Men’s Project sponsored by Duke University’s Women’s Center is a nine-week program charged with “interrogating masculinity through an intersectional lens.” No, we’re not making this up. This college program is currently recruiting two groups of about 15 “male-identified or masculine-of-center” students to participate in a learning community, and the deadline for applying is 5:00 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 15, 2017.
The group is dedicated to “interrogating male privilege and patriarchy,” says its Facebook page. It plans to discuss masculinity as it exists “under multiple spheres of oppression (like patriarchy, white supremacy, heterosexism, cisssexism, and rape culture).”
