Divided States of Sexual Violence

This episode aims to answer: Most perpetrators of sexual violence are men, so why do we call it a women’s issue? The DSOW team spoke with masculinity expert Jackson Katz about why sexual violence is not reframed as an issue that also affects men. We also spoke to NJ based teacher Nicholas Ferroni and his students about their Boys to Men club and the role young men want to play in gender equality.
