TED Talk: Jackson Katz, Ph.D

Recommended By: Rachael

There’s been a lot of buzz lately about a shady movie due to come out on Valentine’s Day weekend, and I’m quite frankly fed up with it! Any movie that glamorizes or romanticizes violence against women is dangerous, both for men and for women. So, rather than spend a few hours watching trash, why not spend 20 minutes watching this amazing TED talk by Jackson Katz, Ph. D.

It starts off like this:

“I’m going to share with you a paradigm-shifting perspective on the issues of gender violence –sexual assault, domestic violence, relationship abuse, sexual harassment, sexual abuse of children. That whole range of issues that I’ll refer to in shorthand as “gender violence issues,”they’ve been seen as women’s issues that some good men help out with, but I have a problem with that frame and I don’t accept it. I don’t see these as women’s issues that some good men help out with. In fact, I’m going to argue that these are men’s issues, first and foremost.”bf9c21f8ff16bf5faa421c88c884d687
