For a few years now, events relayed in the news have increasingly attracted the public’s attention on movements asking for a return to traditional values, questioning the place of women in society, and rejecting our constitutional societies’ institutional model, especially as concerns gender equality. Have recent historical feminist victories, in Québec as elsewhere, encouraged the emergence of concerns over men’s roles in society, as well as anxieties over the centrality of the masculine model?
Without pretending to offer an exhaustive answer to this question, the CPRLV wants to offer a webinar aimed at demystifying different movements associated to the manosphere. This mostly online environment invites growing curiosity in various sectors, including the academic community. Thus, in this webinar, we will provide descriptions of the main components of this movement – such as the Incels – as well as of their respective levels of radicality, and main activities or practices. Finally, the webinar will explore the context of these movements’ emergence, their means of diffusion and communication, their vocabulary, and the concrete forms through which they express violence – gendered or otherwise.
