Tough Guise: Violence, Media & the Crisis in Masculinity

General Material
Published Date

This 7 minute clip from the full-length educational film, "Tough Guise," introduces the impact of media culture on social constructions of masculinity.

While the social construction of femininity has been widely examined, the dominant role of masculinity has until recently remained largely invisible. "Tough Guise" is the first educational video geared toward college and high school students to systematically examine the relationship between pop-cultural imagery and the social construction of masculine identities in the U.S. at the dawn of the 21st century.
