Recent cultural movements highlight the scandal of everyday gender-based violence, calling into question assumptions about progress, violence, and gender in the United States. While it’s clear that male-identified folks have a role in creating change, questions of strategy and significance remain. This workshop will focus on cultivating awareness of everyday types of gender-based violence, with the goals of, first, exposing normalized behaviors and dynamics, and, second, thinking critically about meaningful approaches to prevention. Ultimately, we will examine and formulate together the question: “What is men’s role in confronting everyday forms of gender-based violence?” Michael Brasher (School of Geography and Development) will facilitate this conversation based on his current research and work doing anti-violence organizing in Tucson.
We will provide LUNCH for this event! It's first-come, first-served, so make sure you show up early!
