The Bro Code: How Contemporary Culture Creates Sexist Men movie followed by panel discussion
Tue., Jan. 29, at 7:30pm
The student group RAISE (Raising Awareness in Interactions of Sexual Encounters) presents the movie The Bro Code: How Contemporary Culture Creates Sexist Men. In MEF's powerful new release The Bro Code filmmaker Thomas Keith takes aim at the forces in male culture that condition boys and men to dehumanize and disrespect women. Keith breaks down a range of contemporary media forms that are saturated with sexism–movies and music videos that glamorize misogyny; pornography that trades in the brutalization of women; comedy routines that make fun of sexual assault; and a slate of men's magazines and cable TV shows whose sole purpose is to revel in reactionary myths of American manhood.
The movie will be followed by a panel discussion with Jason Casares (Associate Dean and Director of the Office of Student Ethics), Justin Garcia (Postdoctoral Fellow, The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction), Michael Goodman (Assistant Director for Fraternity and Sorority Life), and Eric Love (Director of the Office of Diversity Education). Join in the discussion of this powerful film.
