Tough Guise - Violence Media and the Crisis in Masculinity

Jackson Katz argues that widespread violence in American society, including the tragic school shootings in Littleton, Colorado, Jonesboro, Arkansas, and elsewhere, needs to be understood as part of an ongoing crisis in masculinity. Tough Guise is the first educational video geared toward college and high school students to systematically examine the relationship between pop-cultural imagery and the social construction of masculine identities in the U.S. at the dawn of the 21st century.

Omigatos…I love this video…it was the inspiration for my thesis in college and directly prevented me from dropping out of college…thanks for putting it in front of my face!!
