Breaking Our Silence
Gloucester Men Speak Out Against Domestic Abuse

This 11-minute documentary gives insight into the activist efforts of a group of men in the town of Gloucester, MA. Using footage from anti-violence marches and centering on community men speaking out against violence and domestic abuse, this video is an effective case study of how men can come together to challenge the violent construction of masculinity. With its focus on taking action to make change, Breaking Our Silence is an excellent case study of the theories presented in MEF's Tough Guise.
