By Jackson Katz
In the U.S., between 1 in 4 and 1 in 6 women will be the victim of rape or attempted rape in their lifetime, and one study found that at least 20 percent of adolescent girls have been physically or sexually abused by a date or a boyfriend.
According to this book, all men have a role to play in preventing male violence against women. Katz’s basic assertion is that rape, battering, sexual abuse, and harassment are so widespread that they are deeply rooted in our culture, not merely as the problem of troubled individuals.
He urges men to directly confront the misogynistic attitudes and behavior of their peers and make these issues their own.
