Abstract

This paper is a theoretical study of the interpretation of masculinity as a subject that refers to the position of men and power in the context of responding to the impact of climate change. Climate change refers to the phenomenon of global warming that results in disasters for humans, including increasing vulnerability to gender inequality in women compared to men. Masculine subjectivity in this study refers to the mindset of men which is influenced by elements of social structure, and their relationship with women. The previous approach, firstly, masculine subjectivity represents aspects of male behavior that fluctuate over time, which opens up opportunities for the diversity of masculinity subjects. Second, masculinism shows the existence of a patriarchal ideology that justifies the naturalization of hegemony over male domination. These two approaches leave questions, the diversity of meanings of masculinity and the awareness of patriarchy as an ideology that has not fully answered the challenge of gender equality in the impact of climate change. Thus, how is masculine subjectivity, which opens up opportunities for reinterpreting masculine hegemony in responding to the impacts of climate change? This study uses a literature review method with the psychoanalytic approach of Jacques Lacan, that masculine subjectivity is not fixed and competes with each other (agonistic), thus disturbing hegemony and opening up opportunities for gender equality. which opens up opportunities for reinterpreting masculine hegemony in response to the impacts of climate change?
