Man Talk! Ending Campus Sexual Assault
And the Three Secrets of a Great Relationship
Our campuses have a big problem. But the truth is that most men want good relationships (whether it’s for one-night or the rest of your life.) Campus men want the women we care about to feel safe. This talk, full of stories, humor, and packed with information, looks at the root causes of dating violence. It challenges stereotypes and the actions of some men, but does not dump on guys. It gives clear information about consent. It deals with serious issues, but it’s fun and very positive. It gets to the heart and soul (and, yes, other things) of how to build relationships that will make you feel good. A real crowd pleaser.
Guy’s Guide to Feminism … The Talk
Really now. How should men react to feminism? Are we screwed forever? Or liberated? Set up for collective blame or about to experience a new era of better relationships? And what do men really need to know about feminism? Based on his hit-Indie book co-written with Michael Kimmel, Michael Kaufman explores what men need to know about feminism and how they can react in a positive way to these momentous changes. An incomparable night of humor, serious conversation, story-telling, and hard-hitting analysis.
We Can End Violence Against Women!
Far too many women face a grave threat each and every day. How can we end physical, sexual, and emotional violence against women? This talk, drawing on Michael Kaufman’s pioneering work around the world with the United Nations and his role as co-founder of the White Ribbon Campaign, analyzes the root causes of this violence and charts an optimistic pathway for women and men to work together to end the violence.
Michael delivers auditorium talks, does in-service talks to teachers, presents after-school or evening programs to parents, and speaks at teachers' conventions.
