New Film with Former Football Star Zeroes in on the Blind Spots of Traditional Masculinity
“Groundbreaking. A powerful resource for engaging young people—especially men—in potentially life-changing dialogue.”
— Jackson Katz | Author of The Macho Paradox
Don’t miss our new film You Throw Like a Girl: The Blind Spot of Masculinity, featuring leading anti-violence educator Don McPherson, a former college football star and NFL veteran. In the film, McPherson draws on examples from his storied football career and his decades of experience in the gender violence prevention field to show how cultural norms of manhood can reproduce sexist attitudes and create a culture of silence around men’s violence against women. In the end, McPherson lays out a positive, empowering, and healthy vision of manhood that stands in stark contrast to the restrictive codes of manhood that circulate in American media and male peer cultures.
You Throw Like a Girl is co-directed by award-winning filmmakers Peter Hutchison and Lucas Sabean, the team behind our forthcoming film Healing From Hate: Battle for the Soul of a Nation.
