This TEDxPlanoSalon will focus on overcoming rigid and toxic expectations of gendered behavior. Topics include identifying traits of "toxic masculinity," understanding the impact of gender-construct on others, and how to embark on a journey to unlearn toxic masculinity. Participants, men and women, will be given space to express their gender in ways that feel authentic and safe for themselves.
* As background on this topic, organizers suggest viewing Jackson Katz’s TED Talk, Violence Against Women - it's a Men's Issue.
