Taking Stock: A Project by Two Girls Working

November 9, 2014

What are men thinking? About themselves, their families, their jobs, their lives, their bodies, their future, their fathers, their sons, their lovers, their mothers, their sisters, their religion, their sexuality, their gender, their death? What is important to them and why? When do they feel like they have made contributions that mean something to them, to others? What is considered when making life decisions?

These questions intrigue us. Although the way men are portrayed by themselves and others has certainly expanded, the stereotype of men only caring about sex, money, sports, and gadgets (not necessarily in that order) abounds. That is certainly not the picture of the men we know in our lives. Our relatives, colleagues, and partners all seem more complicated than that.

But how to get to those stories? Taking Stock asks men to respond to the question “what do you do that makes you feel valuable?”
