Abstract

Masculinity, and gender more broadly, has been theorised as a series of performative and discursive acts (Butler, 1990) which are constituted contextually and culturally. Not only are masculinities enacted differently across cultures, they are also performed differently within groups of the same culture, and by individuals.
