This Man Wants to Turn Men Into Feminists

This man, Jackson Katz, Ph.D, is absolutely amazing. The TED speaker will convince you to approach gender violence as a man's issue, rather than a woman's issue. Since men overwhelmingly tend to be the perpetrators of violence, why does it make sense for women to be exclusively responsible to end it? We need a paradigm shift and this man knows where it needs to start: with men.


The highlight? At 15:40, watch him powerfully say: "We don't need sensitivity training, we need leadership training." It's not about political correctness, it's about being a good leader. When coaches, administrators or community heads make sexist comments, they are failing at their leadership. It's up to them to take a stand. It's time to man up!
