Why Men?

Why have a feminist bookclub for men? Women shouldn't have to spend all their time teaching men about feminism, or how not to be jerks. There's plenty to read on this topic, and men should be responsible for teaching themselves. Women are of course welcome, but shouldn't feel obliged to come: there are lots of more interesting things to do than teach men how to be decent human beings.
