The Pyramid of Violence

You know you are supposed to intervene when someone might be in harm, but do you know when or why something could be harmful? Name-calling, jokes and even biased attitudes could lead to a harmful situation. As Buckeyes, it is important that we become active bystanders in these situations. In this video, Hadas explains how something like a joke can lead to further violence.

Nameless

Nameless is a documentary that addresses child sex trafficking in Washington, DC, and at-large. Through interviews with experts, advocates and activists, child sex trafficking is reframed as a form of sexual violence that is often made invisible. Child sex trafficking is explored as an issue with deep historical-cultural roots, tackles misperceptions about which populations are most vulnerable to being trafficked and illuminates systemic gaps in the current treatment of trafficking victims. Featuring 15 interviewees on the frontlines of the issue, Nameless mobilizes viewers to recognize and combat child sex trafficking. Nameless is a project of Men Can Stop Rape in partnership with the DC Coalition to End Sexual Violence. 

Join for one of the available screenings: 

  • Thursday, April 16, 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, April 28, 1 - 2:30 p.m.

A Twitter townhall will follow each screening. Share your thoughts and questions @MenCanStopRape and use #SAAM and #NamelessFilm

The Bystander Movement

The #MeToo movement has shined much-needed light on the pervasiveness of sexual harassment and abuse and created unprecedented demand for gender violence prevention models that actually work.

The Bystander Movement tells the story of one of the most prominent and proven of these models - the innovative bystander approach developed by pioneering scholar and activist Jackson Katz and his colleagues at Northeastern University's Center for the Study of Sport in Society in the 1990s.

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.

Experts in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, sports, education and media also weigh in, offering empirical evidence of the "boy crisis" and tactics to combat it. The Mask You Live In ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.
