The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women and How All Men Can Help

  • Event Poster Slider Image

Have you always wanted to be a part of ending violence but didn't know where to start? Are you determined to get your friends engaged in ending sexual sexual assault? Really interested in how we get guys involved in violence prevention?

Jackson Katz has answers for you.

Join us for our Sexual Assault Awareness Keynote speaker: famous educator, author, and violence prevention activist, Jackson Katz. He will be speaking on male culture, how it influences violence, and how we make our communities closer, safer, and more supportive by getting men involved in prevention here on campus!

His multimedia talk is based on Jackson Katz's popular book The Macho Paradox and explores some of the ways that male culture contributes to sexual and domestic violence and suggests strategies to get men involved in the fight against all forms of men's violence against women. Katz uses multimedia clips from his award-winning videos, including Tough Guise, to accentuate the importance of understanding – and changing – the cultural environment that condones or promotes sexism and violence. He will talk about male peer culture in schools and colleges, men's uses of pornography, prostitution and stripping, sexism in the sports culture and the U.S. military, the many intersections between racism and sexism, and the role of homophobia in all-male groups.

Here's the plan for the night!
