The Macho Paradox

Heard about this book. Think it's a good one to add to your collection.

The Macho Paradox by Jackson Katz.

It looks at why some men hurt women and how all men can help. Heard a great interview with the author early this morning.

There is a printable list on the website featuring 10 Things Men Can Do To Prevent Gender Violence. Print it out and post it in your workspace. Give one to your boss.

While women face the brunt of violence and bias in our male-dominated world, including the LGBT community, men can play a large role in challenging and ending the practices that subordinate women.

Thanks for bringing this book to the attention of bloggers, especially men. Here's another really good book on the subject of male violence:

Why Does He Do That?: Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men by Lundy Bancroft
