November 30, 2009

More than 200 people gathered at Saint John's for the first international conference for campus-based men's gender equality and anti-violence groups. Participants came to Collegeville from over 40 colleges and two dozen organizations.

Participants explored strategies for getting men involved in gender-based activism and discussed alternatives to violent masculinity. Leading researchers in the field presented at the conference including Michael Kimmel, author of Manhood in America: A Cultural History and Guyland; Harry Brod, one of the founders of the discipline of men's studies; and Michael Kaufman, a founder of the White Ribbon campaign, an effort by men to end violence against women.
