Stay-At-Home Dads Unite: Coping With Stigma and Isolation (18:38)

Based on video ethnographic research at Stay-at-Home Dad (SAHD) playgroups, 2006 SAHD convention and in-depth interviews, this film explores the challenges SAHDs face as they undertake the primary caregiver role and the strategies they employ to negotiate their gender positioning vis-a-vis more hegemonic masculinities. While prior CCT research has mainly studied consumption communities (e.g. Salomon snowboarders, Cova and Cova 2002; Apple computer users, Schau and Muniz 2002; Harley Davidson bikers, Schouten and McAlexander 1995) for what they do for individuals, the film discusses SAHDs’ organized activities as collective efforts to transform what it means to be a man and a father.
