"We need more men with the guts, the courage, the strength, and the moral integrity to break our complicit silence and challenge each other to stand with women, not against them."
—Jackson Katz, "Violence against women — it’s a men’s issue."
Hello, Tumblr! Today at 3 PM EST, we’re holding a live Twitter chat with Jackson Katz, the educator, filmmaker, and anti-sexist activist whose moving TEDx talk re-framed the common conversation on gender violence and prompted Upworthy to say it’ll "change any man into a feminist."
Today, WE WANT YOU to get on Twitter and ask Jackson the questions on your mind regarding domestic violence, male culture, gender violence, really, anything you want.
Ask him what we can do to stop victim blaming in cases of sexual assault, violence, and abuse; ask him who his favorite activist is; ask him how to talk to someone who is making degrading or sexist comments; ask him what he hopes for future generations; ask him whatever your heart desires.
Follow the whole chat using the hashtag #TEDxChat or check out our feed on @TEDx.
We hope you’ll join us today at 3 PM EST!
