Women's History Month at UNC Concludes Monday with Presentation by Renowned Social Theorist

Jackson Katz

The University of Northern Colorado's celebration of Women's History Month concludes March 31 with a presentation by a social theorist internationally recognized for his groundbreaking work in gender violence prevention education.

The presentation by author, educator, filmmaker and social theorist Jackson Katz at 7 p.m. in the University Center ballrooms, 2101 10th Ave. is free and open to the public.

Katz has long been recognized as one of America's leading anti-sexist male activists. He's the author of The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women and How All Men Can Help, a candid look at the cultural factors that lend themselves to tolerance of abuse and violence against women.

He co-founded Mentors in Violence Prevention, a program that has worked with thousands of high school and college-aged men to prevent violence against women, and he's the director of the first worldwide domestic and sexual violence prevention program in the United States Marine Corps.

Katz, who was the first man to minor in women's studies at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, earned a Ph.D. in cultural studies and education from UCLA.

Parking is free in UNC lots after 5 p.m.
