Internationally acclaimed educator and activist Jackson Katz refuses to see domestic violence and sexual abuse as “women’s issues” that “some good men help out with.”

In “Violence Against Women – It’s a Men’s Issue,” he explains why – and how – all men can work with women as partners and allies to end gender violence and promote equality.

Katz will speak 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26 in Cordier Auditorium on the North Manchester campus of Manchester University. It is free and open to the public.

Katz is an author, educator and social theorist with a doctorate in cultural studies and education from the University of California, Los Angeles. His work focuses on gender, race and violence.

He co-founded Mentors in Violence Prevention and since 1997 has run MVP Strategies, which provides sexual harassment and gender violence prevention training around the world.

His TEDxFiDi talk about men and violence against women has been viewed more than 2 million times.

The presentation is sponsored by the Manchester University Gender Studies Council and the College of Arts and Humanities. It is part of the Values, Ideas and the Arts series, designed to enhance the student experience.

Anne Gregory is the assistant director of media relations in the Office of Strategic Communications at Manchester University.
