What do the Promise Keeper’s Movement and the Million Man March reveal about our notions of masculinity and paternal responsibility? What can such films as Varda’s Vagabond and Bergman’s Persona tell us about contemporary notions of masculinity and femininity? In this provocative new book, well-known feminist and philosopher Kelly Oliver examines the dynamics of identity to develop a new theory which challenges traditional notions of paternity and maternity.
