“Groundbreaking. A powerful resource for engaging young people—especially men—in potentially life-changing dialogue.”
— Jackson Katz | Author of The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women and How All Men Can Help


In You Throw Like a Girl, leading gender violence prevention educator Don McPherson, a former Syracuse University quarterback and NFL veteran, explores how limited definitions of “manhood” create “blind spots” that do untold harm to women and men alike. Drawing on examples from his storied football career and his decades of experience working with athletes, McPherson forces us to confront the deep-seated cultural roots of sexism, misogyny, and gender violence, and lays out a more positive and healthy vision of manhood. Directed by award-winning filmmakers Peter Hutchison and Lucas Sabean.
