9781477308769: Beyond Machismo: Intersectional Latino Masculinities (Chicana Matters (Hardcover))

Long considered a pervasive value of Latino cultures both south and north of the US border, machismo—a hypermasculinity that obliterates any other possible influences on men's attitudes and behavior—is still used to define Latino men and boys in the larger social narrative. Yet a closer look reveals young, educated Latino men who are going beyond machismo to a deeper understanding of women's experiences and a commitment to ending gender oppression. This new Latino manhood is the subject of Beyond Machismo.

Applying and expanding the concept of intersectionality developed by Chicana feminists, Aída Hurtado and Mrinal Sinha explain how the influences of race, class, ethnicity, sexuality, and gender shape Latinos' views of manhood, masculinity, and gender issues in Latino communities and their acceptance or rejection of feminism. In particular, the authors show how encountering Chicana feminist writings in college, as well as witnessing the horrors of sexist oppression in the United States and Latin America, propels young Latino men to a feminist consciousness. By focusing on young, high-achieving Latinos, Beyond Machismo elucidates this social group's internal diversity, thereby providing a more nuanced understanding of the processes by which Latino men can overcome structural obstacles, form coalitions across lines of difference, and contribute to movements for social justice.

Review:

"What Gloria Anzaldua’s canonical book Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza did for Chicanas—provide a framework for understanding Chicana identities, politics, and epistemologies—Beyond Machismo will do for Latino males. This is a brilliant book." (Victor Rios, Professor of Sociology, University of California, Santa Barbara, and author of Punished: Policing the Lives of Black and Latino Boys)
