    Abstract

    Despite increased interest in men and masculinities in marketing and consumer research (MCR), mainstream research has neglected feminist perspectives that engage with issues of gender power relations. In particular, critical studies of men and masculinities (CSMM), including concepts such as the hegemony of men, patriarchies, transnational patriarchies, or simply transpatriarchies, are rarely theoretically or empirically developed. This chapter begins by highlighting the emergence of research on men and masculinities in MCR as based on images, representations and identities. This is followed by theoretical developments of CSMM, including the hegemony of men and transpatriarchies. We explain how these theories have appeared in recent research and how they can further impact change in relation to contemporary issues. This chapter then seeks to build on the momentum of recent feminist research efforts in MCR by calling out the more systematic gender power relations within the previously depoliticised research on men and masculinities.
