Episode 06: Toxic Masculinity and Misogyny
How do you define toxic masculinity and misogyny, and how do they contribute the violence in our societies?
That’s the question we aim to answer in this episode. We spoke with Marisa Tramontano, who teaches theories of gender and masculinity, and Pablo Castillo-Diaz who is a Policy Specialist at UN Women, and studies the link between violent extremism and misogyny internationally.
Marisa explains how toxic masculinity and our current political environment has perpetuated gun violence in America, while Pablo gives us a more nuanced definition of misogyny, and talks about how and why it is perpetuated in areas like Sudan.
