Tough Guise 2: Exploring Violent, Sexist & Homophobic Messages that Target Boys

Screen Shot 2014-10-20 at 11.18.00 AMTough Guise 2 is a movie that explores violence and images of manhood in American culture.

Pioneering anti-violence educator Jackson Katz argues that the ongoing epidemic of men’s violence in America is rooted in our inability to move beyond outmoded ideals of manhood.

Watch a short TED Talk by Jackson Katz on the male culture of violence and the issue of “gender violence issues.” He said he doesn’t see gender violence as just a women’s issue that some good men help out with. He said that gives men an excuse not to pay attention.

The film provides a stunning look at the violent, sexist and homophobic messages boys and young men receive.
