Great article it brings to mind this documentary, well both of these documentaries. The Mask You Live In. This film explores how America’s narrow definition of masculinity is harming boys, men, and society at large. The Mask You Live In follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity.
The Miss Representation documentary. In this one the media is selling the idea that girls’ and women’s value lies in their youth, beauty, and sexuality and not in their capacity as leaders. Boys learn that their success is tied to dominance, power, and aggression. We must value people as whole human beings, not gendered stereotypes.
Thanks again for the great article you can watch both trailers here.
