The Empathy Gap with discussion lead by Director Tom Keith following the film
This film explores how American culture bombards young men with sexist and misogynistic messages to short-circuit men's ability to empathize with women, respect them as equals, and take feminism seriously. Along the way, the film draws fascinating parallels between sexism and racism, spelling out how each is rooted in cultural norms that discourage empathy.
This is the first film of the Social Justice Film Series hosted by the Matrix Center for the Advancement of Social Equity and Inclusion. Co-sponsored by Compass Curriculum, the Kraemar Family Library, and the WEST department.
