Description The chapter aims to theoretically enrich and develop the concept of hegemonic masculinities. Grounded in several research studies of Czech men and masculinities, the chapter argues that an analysis of post-socialist and post-totalitarian lived experiences with gender, and specifically of dominant forms of masculinities in the post-socialist context, offers an opportunity to enrich the Critical Studies on Men and Masculinities scholarship. Based on several studies thematizing Czech masculinities (studies of men in environment protection and ecological education, men in a nurturing status, men present at childbirth and men in medical profession), the text expands the conventional use of the concept of hegemonic masculinity, pointing towards mechanisms that bring men to reign and to positions of sometimes involuntary domination.
