Ep 26 Toxic masculinity

January 4, 2018

In Episode 26, we dig into toxic masculinity - what it is, examples of this particular brand of masculinity, how it hurts both women AND men, and how to resist and change this behavior. In the Trumpster Fire, we show how Donald Trump is a prime example of toxic masculinity. Our newest segment, Fierce Woman Warrior, is a brief profile on an amazing woman who is actively working to change her community. Our Fierce Woman Warrior this episode is Dr. Nadia Richardson, scholar and mental health wellness advocate who founded No More Martyrs. Our Media Minute asks you to read Naomi Klein's newest book, No is Not Enough:Resisting the New Shock Politics and Winning the World We Need and our Activist Action asks you to learn how to sit in silence with the stories you read from the #metoo movement.
