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

According to the tweet from which I lifted this, cultural theorist Jackson Katz asked people what they did on a routine, daily basis to avoid sexual assault.  There was a stark difference between the answers given by men and those given by women.




I'm embarrassed that this is the first I've heard of Dr. Katz, but I will be doing more research into his work.


He is endorsed by Dr. Jean Kilbourne.  If you haven't seen her "Killing Us Softly" videos on violence against women, it will be well worth your effort to find them and watch them.  You will never look at a simple advertisement -- for anything -- the same way again.
