About Tal H. Peretz
Associate Professor of Sociology

For over a decade, Peretz has engaged in and studied men's anti-sexist and anti-violence activism, in an effort to improve the effectiveness of men's work for gender justice and to better understand gender, intersectional inequality, and social movements. In addition to a co-authored book "Some Men: Feminist Allies and the Movement to End Violence Against Women" (, his scholarship on men, masculinities, and feminism has been published in academic journals, edited volumes, and popular and activist/professional newsletters. He has contributed to the blog, posting advice for men’s allyship groups, and been interviewed for stories in the New York Times and Washington Post. His latest research looks at how intersecting race, class, religious, and sexual identities shape the efforts of two grassroots men's gender justice groups.
