#MeToo: What Happens When Men Take Action for Change? | April 11
Time: 6:30 – 8 p.m.
Location: Calgary Central Library
In this panel, our speakers challenge notions of masculinity by looking more closely at men as allies and pro-feminists. The current climate of #MeToo is a time in which many men are (re)thinking masculinity. This panel questions anti-feminist politics of “boys as victims” and “disadvantaged boys” in education and instead provokes a rethink of men as change agents and allies. [UCalgary Alumni is proud to support this event]
