Women’s Rights in the Remaking of Masculinity

(p.123) 4 Women’s Rights in the Remaking of Masculinity
AIDS and Masculinity in the African City

Robert Wyrod

University of California Press

This chapter draws on research with nineteen cohabiting couples to present the range of ways in which women’s rights matter to the gender dynamics in intimate relationships in urban Uganda. Each relationship reveals a significant aspect of how the power dynamics of relationships change when women’s rights come home. It attends to the more microscale of everyday social interactions within intimate relationships in order to understand how women’s rights become meaningful in specific social contexts and what the implications of this may be for how masculinity has been reshaped and reworked in the context of AIDS.

Keywords:   masculinity, women’s rights, human rights, sexuality, HIV/AIDS
