Please plan to join the KU community on Monday, August 27 at 7 p.m. in Keystone Arena for More Than a Few Good Men: American Manhood and Violence Against Women. This presentation is free and open to the public. Speaker Dr. Jackson Katz, educator, author, filmmaker and social theorist, has long been recognized as one of America’s leading anti-sexist male activists. Known for his provocative presentation, Katz interjects irreverent humor with unpleasant reality. He stimulates dialogue between the sexes by illuminating how individual stories are linked to larger social forces.
Also, on Tuesday, Aug. 28, at 9:30 a.m. in MSU 183, Alumni Auditorium, Katz will conduct a workshop. For more information, please contact Dr. Lyn McQuaid, Chair, KU Commission on the Status of Women at firstname.lastname@example.org.
