Scott Jones Posted 8 months ago Jackson Katz: Violence against women—it's a men's issue I don't know if we watched the same presentation, or if you are going out of your way to prove the point to this presentation. Leadership is the key point, and men of power (since men primarily do have power) taking ownership to call out unacceptable behavior. The presentation was not focusing on having a man step in and stop the attack, but to drive a culture change away from thinking that it is ok to use violence against those weaker than you. Your post seems to be that we need to change women so that men stop hitting them. Seems a bit indirect, men need to own their actions and stop hitting those weaker than them (women, children, and other men included). Yes I am a man. Your post seems to be making the point that men beat women because they think this makes them look "tough" and they will get more girls. I hope that men would be strong enough to act in a way that is right, because it is right. There is a great comment above by Joanne Prior about a case where a man killed a kid and the media focus was on everyone else apart from the man that did it. Violence against others is a mens problem as well, not just for women to solve.
