I watched this TEDxTalk today and you should, too. It’s entitled Violence & Silence given by Jackson Katz, and discusses gender violence against women.

Jackson Katz is an interesting guy. Wikipedia says he was the first man ever to minor in Women’s Studies at UMass-Amherst. In this video, he discusses the bystander approach: “instead of focusing on women as victims and men as perpetrators of harassment, abuse or violence, the bystander approach concentrates on the role of peers in schools, groups, teams, workplaces and other social units.” It’s a breath of fresh air.
