This chapter draws upon feminist theory to expose how various systems of oppression, organized around social identities (race, class, able-bodied), are inextricably linked to masculinity. The authors begin by highlighting how all men’s identities are informed by normative male role expectations, and then demonstrate how dominant ideologies about the male role create strains on individual men by expecting conformity to a narrow and unrealistic idealized male role. The chapter draws upon the ADDRESSING model, introduced by Hays (2007), to highlight some of the ways other important social identities interface with dominant masculine norms and influence the psychological development of individual men. The chapter with a case study highlighting the intersectional effects on men’s psychological development and health.

Keywords:   masculinity, intersectionality, feminism, gender role strain paradigm
