Your Call: How can men oppose misogyny?


 On today's Your Call we’ll talk about the role men play in ending gender violence and discrimination.  Since 22-year-old Elliott Rodger killed six people on a misogynist rampage near Santa Barbara almost almost two weeks ago, we’ve been grappling with the effects of gender-based violence in our society.  Last week, we heard many women’s stories. Now we focus on the socialization of men and boys.  What are the most effective ways to help men and boys relate to women as equals?  Join the conversation on the next Your Call with Rose Aguilar and You.

Guests:

Jackson Katz, co-founder of Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP), and author of The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women and How All Men Can Help

Quentin Walcott, co-executive director of Connect NYC and facilitator of V-Men
