Michael S. Kimmel is a sociologist and author who has received international recognition for his work on men and masculinity.

Professor of Sociology at State University of New York at Stony Brook, Michael Kimmel is perhaps the world’s leading expert on men and masculinity. He is the author or editor of more than 20 books on the topic, has consulted with all the Ministries for Gender Equality in the Nordic countries, and has delivered the International Women’s Day lecture at the European Parliament, the Council of Europe, the European Commission, and the European Space Agency. Dr. Kimmel has found ways to bring men into the discussions about gender equality in a way that is engaging and humorous, and enables everyone to feel included in gender equity projects.

His books on masculinity include Changing Men: New Directions in Research on Men and Masculinity (Sage, 1987) and Men Confront Pornography (Crown, 1990), which was called “revelatory” (Kirkus) and “timely and valuable” (Village Voice). His book, Against the Tide: Pro-Feminist Men in the United States, 1776-1990 (Beacon, 1992), is a documentary history of men who supported women’s equality since the founding of the country. This “inspiring, pathbreaking collection of remarkable documents” (Dissent) was also called “meticulously researched” (Booklist) and a “pioneering volume” which “will serve as an inspirational sourcebook for both women and men.” (Publishers’ Weekly).
