Defining Masculinity, Tony T., Chris L., Nick G. and Gustavo R. 11:10

For our project, we came up with an interesting idea since most of us took gender studies classes. We know how a big issue is how society is defining masculinity as tough, non emotional except for anger, “be a man”=be violent and you can’t cry or be sad, etc. We feel like we have an obvious target audience of men and we could interview them about what they think being masculine means. Maybe even show them two pictures one from today’s society and another of a different perspective on masculinity to see which they think is more “manly”. This is an issue since lots of young men may be taught to act this way which leads to more abusive relationships and harsh gender stereotypes.

    Hi Folks, this is a great topic. Consider what the goal of your project is and what you want people/men to do, think or know. Also, think about how you might convey these ideas in a creative way. It might be interesting to explore where these stereotypes come from and the subtle ways they play out in our society.
