Abstract:

The Fathers’ Rights Movement as a Subaltern Counterpublic. According to Nancy Fraser, some formal members of the public sphere tend to be informally marginalized and consequently form “subaltern counterpublics”. This article applies the concept of subaltern counterpublics to the Czech fathers’ rights movement, where members of the movement believe they are discriminated in their parental rights and pushed out of the debate in the public sphere. In spite of being individuals who have represented the traditional hegemons of the public sphere, they have created their own counterpublics in order to assert their interests.
