I Won't Stand for Violence Against Women

Jackson Katz is one of my favorite sociologists. I was introduced to his work early on in my undergraduate career at Southwestern University in Dr. Maria Lowe's Social Patterns and Processes class. He found a way to talk about gender issues and the various concepts, frames, and manifestations in ways that are accessible, thought-provoking, and actionable. He's presenting at Town Hall tonight from 6:00 to 8:00. I won't be able to make it tonight, but encourage anybody who has the ability to check it out to do so.

Jackson Katz, Phd, is an anti-sexist activist and expert on violence, media and masculinities. An author, filmmaker, educator and social theorist, Katz has worked in gender violence prevention work with diverse groups of men and boys in sports culture and the military, and has pioneered work in critical media literacy.Katz is the creator and co-founder of the Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) program, which advocates the 'bystander approach' to sexual and domestic violence prevention.
