Lt. Gov. Movie: Tough Guise 2
Lt. Governor Zuckerman's monthly movie series.
September's movie, Tough Guise 2, provides a stunning look at the violent, sexist, and homophobic messages boys and young men routinely receive from virtually every corner of the culture. It features anti-violence educator, Jackson Katz, who argues that the ongoing epidemic of men's violence in America is rooted in our inability as a society to move beyond outmoded ideals of manhood. Tough Guise 2 stands to empower a new generation of young men -- and women -- to challenge the myth that being a real man means putting up a false front and engaging in violent and self-destructive behavior.
In a panel discussion following the movie, Lt. Governor Zuckerman, representatives from Umbrella and a local legislator will share their thoughts and specific work being done on this issue in Vermont. Questions and comments from the audience are most welcome.
Free and open to the public. For more information.
