Chauvo-Feminism

Sam Mills (Author)
Available

Description

The 2017 #MeToo movement against sexual harassment and abuse felt like a flagship moment, a time at which women were empowered to share their stories in a spirit of empowerment and solidarity and demand change. But have some men simply changed tactics? The latest addition to The Indigo Press's Mood Indigo series sees Sam Mills, author of the acclaimed novel The Quiddity of Will Self ("ambitious and outrageous" Guardian), and recent literary memoir of caring, The Fragments of My Father ("brave and original" The Times) investigate the phenomenon of 'chauvo-feminism', where men present themselves as feminists publicly, in order to advance their careers, while privately exhibiting chauvinistic attitudes. Through testimony from women and men, as well as her own experiences with a chauvo-feminist, Mills explores the grey areas of modern relationships, gaslighting and emotional abuse, the psychological underpinnings of the chauvo-feminist, and asks how we might move beyond 'trial by Twitter' to encourage an honest and productive dialogue between the sexes.
