Does the law have a problem with masculinity?
This event will explore how the law understands what it is to be masculine. It will consider examples, primarily from the criminal law, and recent relevant events, to determine how the law frames masculinity, and we will then investigate and question whether this framing is problematic. We will be asking whether the law has a problem with masculinity and we will examine to what extent this causes difficulties both for women and men in the modern world.
We will also think about how we can make things better for the next generation of women and men, as they too will live their lives through the criminal law.
