‘The Mask You Live In’ Trailer on Harmful Masculinities
Research shows that compared to girls, boys in the United States are more likely to be diagnosed with a behaviour disorder, prescribed stimulant medications, fail out of school, binge drink, commit a violent crime, and/or take their own lives. This short video trailer introduces the film ‘The Mask You Live In’ that explores the narrow definitions of masculinity and the harm it causes boys and men in the United States. It is a useful tool to generate a conversation on harmful masculinities at school, community or workplace. For more information and resources, visit The Representation Project.
