Men have long dominated public, and indeed also private, agendas. Much of what is called politics, research and public discourse more generally has been centrally about men, often overwhelmingly so — an unnamed, obvious but strangely invisible, process — an absent presence.1 Men, masculinity and men’s powers and practices have typically been taken-for-granted. Gender has largely been seen as a matter of and for women; men were generally seen as ungendered, natural or naturalised.
