Documentary Screening: Tough Guise 2
Thu. 13 October 2016, 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm AEDT
TOUGH GUISE 2 stands to empower a new generation of young men - and women - to challenge the myth that being a real man means putting up a false front and engaging in violent and self-destructive behaviour. In a sweeping analysis that cuts across racial, ethnic, and class lines, Jackson Katz examines mass shootings, day-to-day gun violence, violence against women, bullying, gay-bashing, and American militarism against the backdrop of a culture that has normalized violent and regressive forms of masculinity in the face of challenges to traditional male power and authority.
