what is testosterone enanthate For the FIRST TIME(!) we are super excited to have had the opportunity to feature a bonza BLOKE and interview one of our greatest allies, Associate Professor Michael Flood, internationally recognised researcher on men, masculinities, and violence prevention.

e una fregatura le opzioni binarie Beth Nokes (BN): You openly identify as profeminist – which is great! It comes with being a passionate advocate for women’s rights. Was there a particular moment in your life where you decided that this was for you? What helped shape this?

best indicator trading binary options Michael Flood (MF): My advocacy for feminism probably has the same kind of origins as many women’s: personal experiences, exposure to feminist ideals, and an orientation towards social justice and social change. There’s no one moment to which I can trace my feminist politics. But some formative early experiences in my teens and twenties included a sense of distance from traditional masculinity, friendships and relationships with feminist women in the left-wing campus group in which I got involved, challenges to and realisations of my own sexist behaviour and privilege, and two years in an anti-sexist men’s group. I moved from anti-nuclear and left-wing student activism to profeminist activism, including in the group Men Against Sexual Assault and running the magazine XY (which then became a website). I’m not sure why, but I took Women’s and Gender Studies subjects at university, ended up doing a PhD, and continued my involvement in various forms of profeminist and anti-violence activism. I’ve been privileged to find a powerful sense of purpose, participate in inspiring communities and feminist networks, and take part in personal and social change.

Is this the next best frontier in violence prevention?

contodemo senza deposito opzioni binarie MF: Feminist and violence prevention advocates have argued for a long time that, if we are to make real progress in building gender equality and ending men’s violence against women, we will need systemic structural and culture change. And part of this is intensive intervention into the sexist and violence-supportive cultures visible in sport, the military, among informal groups of males, and elsewhere. Sporting codes are starting to take this on. Another key setting is university, and it’s remarkable that there’s been so little prevention work so far on Australia’s campuses. Beyond this, key challenges in violence prevention include implementing comprehensive and multi-pronged interventions, scaling up effective programs, and tackling the social and structural determinants of gender inequality.

youtube strategie opzioni binarie BN: You have written powerfully about different models of masculinity and their relationship to violent behaviours. How are we faring as a nation in our complex understandings of layers of violent and abusive behaviour?

1 minute binary options brokers MF: I see both progress and regress. On the positive side, the national data show real improvements in community understandings of domestic and sexual violence. People in Australia are more likely than they were a decade ago to recognise a range of physical and non-physical behaviours as part of domestic violence, to see domestic and sexual violence as serious, and to reject the idea that such violence can be justified. On the negative side, far too many people struggle to know why women stay with perpetrators, blame anger or sex drive or intoxication rather than gender inequalities, and are willing to excuse domestic violence. Troubling numbers of men, and women, blame the victim, see women as liars, and view men as lust-driven pigs who can’t be held responsible for their sexual behaviour.

buy Viagra sildenafil citrate in Green Bay Wisconsin It turns out that the task is a big one. When it comes to sexual violence for example, feminists for a long time have argued that the problem is ‘rape culture’, pervasive understandings and images of sex and relationships and gender which make violence normal, legitimate, and sexy. And we have only barely started to tackle the powerful constructions of masculinity which shape men’s violence against women. We’ve barely started to change the myriad ways our culture teaches and invites men to rape, assault, and disrespect women.

binäre optionen testkonto demo ohne registrierung BN: In your paper, you also wrote that bystander approaches have been seen as particularly valuable ways to engage men in violence prevention. In 2009 we launched our ‘Be the Hero’ campaign which encouraged boys to speak out if they saw something, and not stand by, and you played a key role in our Melbourne Town Hall event with Dr. Jackson Katz – are you optimistic about seeing an increased engagement by men, and why?

cosa sono le azioni binarie MF: I’m delighted to see the growing emphasis on engaging men, both in the violence prevention field and in wider efforts to build gender justice. That’s a feminist achievement, which locates the responsibility for gender injustice squarely with the group who benefit from it. I’m encouraged to report that there’s a growing body of evidence that interventions can shift boys’ and men’s violent and sexist attitudes and behaviours. There’s an increasing sense in popular culture that men can, and should, do something about sexism. But, this ‘turn to men’ has serious limitations. The bar for men often is set embarrassingly low. We fawn over male celebrities who say the vaguest feminist thing. There’s not enough challenge to, and sometimes downright complicity with, dominant masculinity. Some increasingly popular strategies, such as bystander intervention, have limited evidence of effectiveness. Efforts such as the White Ribbon Campaign don’t do anywhere near enough to engage men in movement-building and collective activism or to build links with feminist networks.

How much of an influence do you think these groups fighting back are currently having on attempts to establish gender equality in Australia?

Köpa Cialis Eksjö MF: Men’s rights and fathers’ rights groups have long engaged in efforts to push back the gains of feminism. Campaigns such as ‘1in3’, I’m sorry to say, have had important successes. They’ve diminished policy-makers’ willingness to name men’s violence against women and prompted an increase in the community perception that women’s domestic violence against men is a significant problem. I don’t know, though, whether their size and influence are increasing or decreasing. There is high-level policy recognition of domestic and sexual violence as expressions of gender inequality, despite anti-feminist men’s groups’ efforts.

fincar available canada BN: A big question, and I’m sure you will have thought a lot about it! How do we are as a nation increase gender equality? Does it need to start from the top-down?

Buy Tadalafil Tastylia 20mg without prescription MF: Well, top-down change will only come about if there’s bottom-up pressure. The only reason that gender inequality and violence against women are on community and public policy agendas is because of decades of feminist activism. Strong, autonomous women’s movements have driven progress – they have shaped public understandings of gender and violence, created services and systems, and demanded institutional change. So now that ‘engaging men’ is on the agenda, this must be grounded in feminist agendas and done in accountable ways. More widely, we need alliances between diverse projects of and movements for social justice. As I said at the end of a speech the other day, we have to make noise and make trouble. Become activists. Build movements. And change the world.

MF: Goodness me, that’s a tough one. Let’s see. Audre Lorde, for her activist, intersectional brilliance. Sue Wise, for her feminist Sociology. And Carole Vance, for her landmark work on sexuality and gender. Now, what to cook?
