"You The Man is such an effective program in part because its male characters ring so true. This provides men with a way to empathize and identify with issues that many of us have long chosen to shy away from. The most important recent development in gender violence prevention is an increased focus on men. You The Man is an original, creative -- and dare I say it -- entertaining contribution to this movement. It promises to spark some really useful dialogue between women and men on college campuses, high schools and all sorts of community settings."

-- Jackson Katz, creator of the award-winning video Tough Guise and founder of the Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP)Program - Jackson Katz

Bio

While women have been addressing the issue of dating violence and sexual assault for the last 30 years, the challenge has been to engage men in the conversation and activism--a critical element, as 99% of sexual violence is committed by men. “You The Man” is not an end unto itself, but a means of getting people to talk about the issues. The play empowers men and women to step out of the bystander role and to engage in critical thinking around tough questions: What is informed consent? How does alcohol or drug use factor into consent issues?

It is not reasonable or safe to expect that an abusive or violent person will change, but it is reasonable that in a coordinated response, we can create communities that do not tolerate violence. YTM also offers an opportunity for community resources to join campus resources in the mandatory debriefing session that follows each performance.
