Wash. U. CORE says
LIVE (Leaders in Interpersonal Violence Education) is extremely excited to bring Jackson Katz to Washington University as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

Jackson Katz, Ph.D. is an American educator, author, filmmaker and cultural theorist who is internationally renowned for his pioneering work in gender violence prevention education. He is the co-founder of the Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) program at Northeastern University's Center for the Study of Sport in Society, and was one of the key architects of MVP's innovative and influential bystander approach. His TED talk, “Violence Against Women — It’s a Men’s Issue” has been viewed more than 2 million times. He is the author of the book The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women and How All Men Can Help and the creator/writer of the film Tough Guise 2 - both of which have been extensively used in many courses taught at Washington University.

Jackson Katz speaks around the globe on topics related to violence, media and multiracial & international masculinities. We are very fortunate to have him give his speech "Taking It Personally: Why Gender Violence Is An Issue For Everyone" here at Washington University. Come to Graham Chapel on April 7th at 7:30PM for this once in a lifetime opportunity.
