Why Every Man Should be a Feminist

Jackson Katz: Violence against women—it’s a men’s issue

Calling gender violence a women’s issue is part of the problem. It gives a lot of men an excuse not to pay attention.

This is such an  amazing video from one of the most powerful feminists in North America. Jackson Katz  is an American filmmaker, speaker, author and educator. He has produced several documentaries such as: Wrestling With Manhood: Boys, Bullying, and BatteringTough Guise: Violence, Media, and the Crisis in Masculinity and Spin the Bottle: Sex, Lies, and Alcohol .  Jackson challenges the idea that domestic violence and sexual abuse are “women’s issues” and rather points out that they are men’s issues which relate to the definition of manhood and masculinity. The video asks the important questions regarding violence against women: Whats going on with men?
