Who is missing from the slew of headlines this week on kidnappings, gender-based violence, and victims' paths to healing? The perpetrators themselves.
Which is why this TEDx video is a must-see.
“Gender violence issues have been seen as 'women’s issues' that some good men help out with,” Jackson Katz, PhD, Founder and Director at MVP Strategies, says in the video. “I have a problem with that frame, and I don’t accept it. It gives men an excuse to not pay attention."
Washington D.C. high school student, Chidiki Jones-Whitley, created this video to demonstrate the financial challenges faced by poor Americans on Thanksgiving -- when the cost of turkey alone has gone up nearly 25 percent since last year.
