Feminism and Hyper-Masculinity in Israel: A Case Study in Deconstructing Legal Fatherhood

By Karin Carmit Yefet

Abstract

Feminism has largely treated men as the undifferentiated dominant gender group, neglecting a discussion of men\u27s own gender identity. As a result, the legal conceptualization of masculinity is still under-explored; a tapestry of legal doctrines renders inconsistent ideological messages about what it means to be a \u22man,\u22 and especially what it means to be a father. Israeli legal scholarship, in particular, has done little to explore how extensively stereotypes of masculinity permeate existing law and undermine the role of men as parents
