Recent events have once again put discussions about masculinity and how we teach men and boys to behave at the forefront of public conversation. From the #metoo movement, to the online “manosphere” of pick up artists and incels, to the blatant sexism of our President, the implications are clear: we need to do more to challenge how men are socialized to interact with each other, women, and others impacted by sexism. Even more profoundly, we need to ask how we are teaching men to think about themselves.
Join this training with Regan Byrd Consulting LLC to discuss male socialization, hegemonic masculinity, and the problem with gender binaries, from a WOC perspective.
