Understanding the Male Perspective of a Feminst Movement on a College Campus 


Amber M. Barron
Dr. Victoria Mayer, Faculty Mentor

The first wave of feminism in the United States started in the 1850s, since then there have been two additional waves. During the second wave, there was a growth of apprehension to allow men into the movement, but through intersectionality it has become more inclusive. Since men were once turned away from the movement there is still a tremendous amount of hesitation between men and feminism. I conducted my research through an online survey, where I asked male identifying students to participate. Through my research I found a correlation between one’s age and class year and the participants having a positive outlook on the Feminist Movement. Based on the lack of responses to the survey, this research cannot be assumed for the whole Truman State University community, but it produces implications for further research.
