Masculism (or masculinism) refers to political, cultural, and economic movements aimed at establishing and defending equal political, economic, and social rights and participation in society for men and boys. These rights include legal equalities, such as those of conscription, child custody, alimony, and equal pay for equal work.[1] Its concepts sometimes coincide with those of men's rights, father's rights, and men's liberation.

The term masculinism was coined as the counterpart of feminism in the early 20th century.[2] The shortened form masculism appeared shortly after, and became more common in the 1980s.[3] The masculist political movement originated with E. Belfort Bax's 1913 The Fraud of Feminism.[4] The term masculism itself gained currency in the late 20th century, particularly in the 1990s as advocated by authors such as Warren Farrell and Jack Kammer, in the context of changing gender roles in society.[1]
