The Culture of Masculinity in an Australian Indigenous Community



Jan Hammill relates the evolution of undisciplined masculinity in a former Australian Aboriginal reserve. Decades of suppression and oppression have resulted in a contemporary social environment where violence in many forms is endemic and normalized. An intervention to encourage father/child interactions, although not successful in its intent, had positive repercussions for the young people of the community. Development (2001) 44, 21–24. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110256
