Freedom And Conformity – A Gender Issue Recently I posted the video in my news-streams of Jackson Katz ‘Violence Against Women’ because it struck a chord in how language influences our perceptions… Later, I spoke with my close friend Lance who agreed to read his own, penned words for the camera; in part to explain […]
