SOCInema: Thursday, 10/15 at 3:30pm — Tough Guise II

We hope your semester has been going well! The Department of Sociology would like you to join us for our first film screening of year on Thursday, October 15th at 3:30pm in HSH 201. Information about the film, Tough Guise II,  is below. Please use this link to RSVP.


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

In a sweeping analysis that cuts across racial, ethnic, and class lines, 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.

Along the way, the film provides a stunning look at the violent, sexist, and homophobic messages boys and young men routinely receive from virtually every corner of the culture, from television, movies, video games, and advertising to pornography, the sports culture, and U.S. political culture.
