BCTF Workshop Detail
Men and Boys to Prevent Gender-Based Violence
(1.5–3 hours, includes off-screen working session and break)
Workshop participants will deepen their understanding of how
socialization contributes to the development of oppressive attitudes and
behaviours based on gender. Teachers will begin by examining the varying
degrees of violence against women. After considering the concepts of gender
identity, power, and privilege, participants will reflect on their own values
related to these topics and begin to develop a plan to uphold them. Teachers
will leave the workshop equipped with a deeper understanding of the role men
and boys can play in overcoming violence, along with an enhanced commitment to
taking on this role. This workshop session will be offered to participants who
identify as men. Another session will be offered for all teachers.
