The first part of this paper examines the various gender roles that have been assigned to men in American society. It studies how, through a process of socialization, men are required to acquire several key characteristics that are defined as "masculine," such as aggression, competitiveness and the ability to restrain their emotions. The paper then explores how these new male roles and characteristics are incompatible with many aspects of daily life. In the last part, the paper looks at solutions for addressing this male dilemma. By helping men create new definitions of masculinity, this paper attempts to contribute to more effective therapy strategies that address the growing needs of men.
