‘The MANologues,’ a Performance About Toxic Masculinity

Article here. Excerpt:

'This weekend in Atlanta, theatergoers can see not only Eve Ensler’s Vagina Monologues but also The MANologues, a new performance about “toxic masculinity.”

“The MANologues will explore themes such as masculinity, white male privilege, everyday sexism, war, patriarchy, socialization to gender and race, intersectionality, bystander intervention, allyship, PTSD, porn addiction, mansplaining, police brutality, and more,” according to Atlanta’s Creative Loafing.

HuMAN UP, an “intersectional feminist” organization focused on gender-based violence and men, is producing the performance along with the Atlanta chapter of One Billion Rising, which was founded by the Vagina Monologues author.

Once hailed as a feminist masterpiece, the Vagina Monologues has come under fire in recent years, especially on college campuses. Critics have complained the show is insufficiently inclusive of transgender people.'
