The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women and How All Men Can Help (Hardcover)

The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women and How All Men Can Help By Jackson Katz Cover Image
Currently unavailable from publisher and distributor


A fully revised and updated edition to a classic bestseller, The Macho Paradox is the first book to show how violence against women is a men's issue--and how all genders can come together to stop it.

From the #MeToo movement to current discussions about gender norms in schools, sports, politics, and media culture, The Macho Paradox incorporates the voices and experiences of the women, men, and others who have confronted the problem of gender violence from all angles.

Bestselling author Jackson Katz is a pioneering educator and activist on the topic of men's violence against women. In this revised edition of his heralded book, Katz outlines the ways in which cultural ideas about manhood contribute to men's sexually harassing and abusive behaviors and that men have a positive role to play in challenging and changing the sexist cultural norms that too often lead to gender violence.

This important book for abused women covers topics ranging from mental and emotional abuse to sexual harassment to domestic violence and is a vital read for women with controlling partners or as a self-help book for men.

Praise for The Macho Paradox:

A candid look at the cultural factors that lend themselves to tolerance of abuse and violence against women.--Booklist

If only men would read Katz's book, it could serve as a potent form of male consciousness-raising.--Publishers Weekly

These pages will empower both men and women to end the scourge of male violence and abuse. Katz knows how to cut to the core of the issues, demonstrating undeniably that stopping the degradation of women should be every man's priority.--Lundy Bancroft, author of Why Does He Do That?: Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men
