As part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Women's and Gender Studies and Wellness and Recreation Services will host a screening and discussion of "The Mask You Live In." This documentary, from the makers of "Miss Representation," follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become “real” men. "The Mask You Live In" ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.
Following the 90-minute film, Mark Rowe-Barth, Alan Heisterkamp and Michael Fleming will lead a discussion.
This event is free and open to the public. Please note this film contains content that may not be suitable to children under 16.
