The book is about gender relations and how they affect HIV-AIDS and other problems of contemporary society. It discusses the presence, achievements and failures of women and men's movements. It shows that though women are at a greater disadvantage, men's problems also need to be addressed. The book shows that men are not the creators of women's suffering but the problem is in the norms and values of society which at times affect men negatively. Men are also encouraged to desist from maintaining the status quo and the fact that emancipating women is not dominating men is shown. Sociological paradigms helped in the discussion of the problems and alternative solutions to them.
