How does media define masculinity?

Thank you! With your support, our #BuildConfidence campaign made 20 million impressions in its first two months, one hundred thousand pledge-takers are challenging limiting stereotypes each week, and 48 states and 9 countries are discussing modern masculinity thanks to The Mask You Live In. We couldn’t have done it without you!

To show our gratitude, we wanted to share a special sneak peek of The Mask You Live In curriculum video, “Masculinity in Popular Culture” that explores how masculinity is represented in media. This summer, watch the video with a young person in your life and complete the accompanying activity.

Next, imagine a whole library of videos like this one, inspiring social-emotional learning. In the curriculum, we’ve paired multiple, age-appropriate, short videos with easy to implement lessons for both in and out of school. Keep spreading the gratitude and buy The Mask You Live In Curriculum for your local classroom or community group.

Together, we can make sure everyone, regardless of gender, race, class, age, sexual orientation, or circumstance, can fulfill their human potential.
