Take Back the Night Film Discussion

Representations of Masculinity and Femininity: How Depictions in Popular Media Perpetuate Violence Against Women: Film and Discussion

To commemorate the annual Take Back the Night event, we invite campus community members to join us as we watch and discuss segments from Killing Us Softly and Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes, both of which detail how representations of femininity and manhood in popular culture perpetuate sexism and violence.

This discussion will be facilitated by Jessie Quintero Johnson, PhD, Communication Studies, and Deborah Cohen, LICSW, Coordinator of Clinical Training, University Health Services (UHS) Counseling Center. 

Sponsored by University of Massachusetts Boston's University Health Services, the Graduate Student Assembly, and the Undergraduate Student Government. For more information, please call 617.287.5680.  To learn more about Take Back the Night, visit http://www.takebackthenight.org/
