The Office of Diversity and Community Engagement, Galerstein Women's Center and Gender Studies Program presents "Gender Studies Lecture Series: 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 group, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify and degrade 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. The film ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.
This event is sponsored by The School of Interdisciplinary Studies Gender Studies Program & the Galerstein Women’s Center.
