The MSU VOICE Center and the Not In Our House Taskforce are proud to host a free screening of The Mask You Live In
This documentary, by the creators of Miss Representation, follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity. The movie illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.
The Mask You Live In explores the way our culture’s narrow definition of masculinity is harming boys, men, and society at large. Compared to girls, research shows that boys in the U.S. are more likely to be diagnosed with a behavior disorder, prescribed stimulant medications, fail out of school, binge drink, commit a violent crime, and/or take their own lives. The Mask You Live In asks: "As a society, how are we failing our boys"?
This event is open to the entire Bozeman community, and we encourage everyone to invite friends and family to this powerful event. The film will be followed by a panel discussion.
