This article analyses the novel Aitaren etxea (lit. ‘The Father’s House’, self-translated into Castilian Spanish as La casa del padre), by Karmele Jaio. The book, which is dedicated to “all new men”, explores the gender dynamics underlying family relations, professional advancement in the cultural field, and the Basque national struggle. As a thesis novel, it calls on men to take stock of the ways in which they have perpetrated patriarchal structures so that they may be open to new attitudes.

Keywords: Literature. Basque literature. Karmele Jaio. Feminism. New masculinity. | Literatura. Literatura vasca. Karmele Jaio. Feminismo. Nuevas masculinidades.
