TED Talk: Violence Against Women - It's a Men's Issue
In the wake of the Santa Barbara shooting, when killer Elliot Rodgers set out on a shooting rampage to "punish" womankind for rejecting his advances, I felt that it would be right to share a TED talk about violence against women. Although this one has been around for a while, its message is more relevant than ever before. Men need to care about violence against women, and be allies to end the violence. Elliot Rodger's actions were terrible and inexcusable, but not an isolated incident. Rather, they are part of the larger misogynistic society in which we live, where men are taught that they should feel entitled to women's bodies. We must end the violence and dismantle this culture.
