About the event
What role does toxic masculinity, patriarchy, and a "crisis of manliness and manhood" play in our political divisions and the rise of Donald Trump? From the #metoo movement, to the online "manosphere" of pick up artists and incels, to the blatant sexism of our President and his cohorts, 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 to learn more about the U.S. cultural ideal of masculinity and the role it is playing in our political discourse and social strife.
