Politics plays a crucial role in the construction of masculinities. This article exam- ines the workings of political masculinities in Turkey in two categories: conven- tional party-related political masculinities and the emergence of a cosmopolitan masculinity. This article contributes to, and moves beyond, existing debates on hegemonic masculinity by bringing in political actors and traditions in the lives of ordinary men that are affected by leaders and discourses. We contend that there is a correlation between hegemonic masculinity and political masculinities as they connect and work upon relationality, justification, and persuasion in gender rela- tions, the legitimation of patriarchy, and hierarchical masculinities.
