Michael Kimmel speaks at Auraria Denim Day

Michael Kimmel, a leading scholar on men and masculinity, spoke at Denim Day yesterday. His speech highlighted the notion that rape is a men’s problem, because men are 99% of rape perpetrators. We need to shift the conversation about rape and violence to one of male responsibility instead of simply telling women to wear more conservative outfits or don’t go out at night. Women who are raped are not at fault; the rapists are! What do you think about this shift in the conversation?

To learn more about Kimmel’s ideas and work, please visit michaelkimmel.com and look into one of his many excellent books.
