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 Battering, Tough 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?
