The #MeToo movement has shined much-needed light on the pervasiveness of sexual violence and created unprecedented demand for gender violence prevention approaches that actually work. The Bystander Moment tells the story of one of the most prominent and proven of these approaches—the innovative bystander model developed by pioneering anti-violence activist and writer Jackson Katz and his colleagues. At its core, the video explores the role of bystanders—especially friends, teammates, classmates, and coworkers—in perpetuating sexual harassment, sexual assault, and other forms of gender violence. Katz gives special attention to peer culture dynamics— especially male peer culture dynamics across race and ethnicity—that help to normalize sexism and misogyny while silencing other men in the face of abuse. He also stresses the crucial importance of appealing to people not as potential perpetrators or passive spectators, but as active bystanders and potential leaders who have a positive role to play in challenging and changing the sexist cultural norms that too often lead to gender violence. Participants will watch the film, The Bystander Moment and Dr. Katz will join us afterwards to discuss his work and the bystander method.
**CEs cannot be granted for watching the film.
Jackson Katz, Ph.D., is internationally renowned for his pioneering scholarship and activism on issues of gender, race, and violence. He has long been a major figure and thought leader in the growing global movement of men working to promote gender equality and prevent gender violence. He is co-founder of Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP), one of the longestrunning and most widely influential gender violence prevention programs in North America, and the first major program of its kind in the sports culture and the military. Katz was one of the key architects of the now broadly popular "bystander" approach that MVP introduced to the sexual assault and relationship abuse fields. Since 1997 he has run MVP Strategies, which provides sexual harassment and gender violence prevention/leadership training to institutions in the public and private sectors in the U.S. and around the world.
