A Note from Tracy Schott, host, Voices4Change Radio Show — Today, we welcome Jackson Katz, Ph.D. to our show today. Internationally renowned for his pioneering scholarship and activism on issues of gender, race, and violence, Jackson has long been a major figure and thought leader in the growing global movement of men working to promote gender equality and prevent gender violence.

He is co-founder of the multiracial, mixed-gender Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) program, one of the longest-running and most widely influential gender violence prevention programs in North America and beyond.

Jackson’s vast accomplishments include:

  • the classic bestseller The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women and How All Men Can Help
  • the critically acclaimed Man Enough? Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and the Politics of Presidential Masculinity
  • the creator of the award-winning Tough Guise educational documentary series
  • the video The Bystander Moment: Transforming Rape Culture at Its Roots

His most recent film, released in October 2020, is entitled The Man Card: White Male Identity Politics from Nixon to Trump. Jackson has appeared in numerous popular documentaries, including Hip Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes, Miss Representation, and The Mask You Live In. His TEDx talk, Violence Against Women Is a Men’s Issue, has over 4.5 million views. He has lectured and trained in all fifty states, eight Canadian provinces, and every continent except Antarctica.

About the show: With the goal of ending intimate partner violence, Tracy’s documentary “Finding Jenn’s Voice,” brought to light the horrifying fact that one of the leading causes of death during pregnancy is homicide. Determined to stop the international devastation, the Pennsylvania-based entrepreneur has launched a weekly podcast/video series to shine a light on the survivors and experts around the world who are working toward the same goal.

Our guests: Statistics tell us that one in three women will be the victim of intimate partner violence. From teens to the brave women and men who survived domestic violence, you’ll meet them, the researchers, the providers, and the experts who are working to end this premeditated crime.

We’ll see you every Tuesday at 1pm EST: Log on to www.Facebook.com/hopekatzgibbs where Tracy’s publisher and publicist Hope Katz Gibbs will introduce the show.
