Description:

The paper looks at how masculinity was perceived in the pre-World War II period, and the notions of masculinity that have emerged from 1946 onward - if only gradually. In so doing, the paper reviews traditional (pre-1939) notions about men being only worthy of the title if they were willing combatants and providers, and some time is spent looking at how men today are now expected (and encouraged) to also be nurturers and care-givers. What emerges from the paper is a general idea that men are being pressured into becoming more feminine in their world-view even if Canadian society still harbors some sexual stereotypes that instinctively rebel at the thought of men fulfilling certain tasks.
