Winter 2016: Masculinity & Men (BCSA)

Thu February 18th 2016, 12:00am - Tue March 1st 2016, 12:00am

The series kicks off this month with the theme of “Masculinity & Men,” with presentations from two highly regarded writers and scholars, Dr. Jackson Katz and Professor Michael Messner.

On February 18, 2016, Jackson Katz, a world-renowned expert in masculinity and sexual assault, will speak about how dominant forms of masculinity actually inhibit all of us from reaching our full potential.

Continuing with the theme of masculinity, on March 1, Professor Michael Messner will speak to the community about the importance of male allies in the feminist movement. Accompanying these events will be other opportunities to continue the conversation, such as through organized discussions and articles in our monthly e-newsletter, Gender News.
