**Want to help prevent domestic violence? Join our live Twitter chat with Jackson Katz on Monday, October 21 at 3pm ET.**
In the US alone, one in four women will experience domestic violence during her lifetime, and nearly three million men are victims of physical assaults.
Those are staggering figures, and TEDx speaker Jackson Katz is determined to make sure they change. The author, filmmaker (his latest film was just released yesterday!), gender violence prevention educator, and anti-sexism activist is a tough-looking former football player who became the first male to ever receive a women’s studies minor at University of Massachusetts Amherst (true story!), and now works with thousands of people — high school students, Marines, professional athletes, corporate leaders — to help them understand how to put gender violence in its place. That is, away completely.
We got tons of questions after his talk at TEDxFidiWomen last year (we’re still getting them, in fact!), so in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Jackson Katz will answer as many of your questions as he can.
Please join us on MONDAY, OCTOBER 21 at 3pm ET for a live Twitter chat with Jackson Katz. You can follow the conversation with the hashtag #TEDxChat, or check out the @TEDx feed.
We want your questions, your comments, your ideas — everything you’ve ever wanted to ask a male, anti-sexist, feminist activist about life, culture, and everything in between — so bring ‘em on. What do you want to ask?
