Domestic violence and sexual abuse are often called "women's issues." But in this bold, blunt talk, Jackson Katz points out that these are intrinsically men's issues -- and shows how these violent behaviors are tied to definitions of manhood. A clarion call for us all -- women and men -- to call out unacceptable behavior and be leaders of change.
...The courses offered are enthralling, and there was never a dull moment in the classes I took. It was fascinating for me to learn about women's history: our minds, our bodies, our fights.
The professors are exceptional and they are all willing to help if you are having a hard time. I always looked forward to sitting in the women's studies class with a new lesson learned. Another thing I loved was the fact that the courses aren't just lecture courses.
The professors encourage and welcome discussions; our opinions were always accepted. Class was never an hour of writing notes. As a class we were always so deep into our discussions that we would lose track of time. There's a lot to learn and there is a lot to teach."
