The Challenging Male Supremacy Project (CMS) is a grassroots collective in New York City, composed of men working to end gender-based violence, build transformative justice and contribute to broader social movements. We do this work with support from and in collaboration with local feminist, queer and trans justice groups, as well as Bay Area-based groups generationFIVE, generative somatics, and Creative Interventions.
Our Study-into-Action process brought men together to build our capacity to take effective action to challenge male supremacy – in our intimate relationships, our organizing work and society as a whole. In support of such action, we designed the Study-into-Action around three core themes: an intersectional analysis, a Transformative Justice framework and a somatic methodology.
