Shortly after the Virginia Tech shootings, I wrote a diary entitled Why Gender Matters: Putting the VA Tech Shootings in Perspective. I felt this was an important perspective to analysze what happened in Blacksburg because gender and the impact of male violence is so prevelant in our society and we may be missing a crucial element here in ending mens' violence against women, children, and other men. It is my hope that someday men will look to each other, step up, and act in positive healthy ways to end this crisis.
The following is a YouTube presentation of Jackson Katz, a leading anti-sexism educator. He recently received an award from the Western Mens' Resource Center and gave the keynote speech.
I mentioned some of his work in my diary but felt you all should see & hear what he's really all about.
I hope you all find this video helpful.
