MASKulinities: Exploring What It Means to “Be a Man.
August 27 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
@ Muhammed Ali Center
Come join the Muhammad Ali Center and the Own It Initiative at The Center for Women and Families for Part 1 of 4 in our film and discussion series: MASKulinities: Exploring What It Means to “Be a Man.
We are hosting a FREE screening of The Mask You Live In.
The Mask You Live In follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity. Pressured by the media, their peer groups, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify women, and resolve conflicts through violence. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become “real” men.
