The relationship of men to feminism(s) is a difficult one: it is fundamentally about power, and is fundamentally problematic. The relationship exists within a social and societal context of men's domination in interpersonal relations and state, economic, cultural, educational, and other institutions, and yet it is not immediately obvious what the relationship might mean or include. It would seem to encompass material social relations between feminists and men, as well as feminist critiques of and challenges to men,1 and men's responses, particularly conscious responses, to feminism.
