gender violence

GENDERED VIOLENCE: Violence against women, and more generally, the devaluation of femininity, is a pressing issue that is evident in many socio-cultural contexts, including the military. Jackson Katz states that “We are raising generations of boys in a society that in many ways glorifies sexually aggressive masculinity and considers as normal the degradation and objectification of women.”Using examples from at least TWO different course texts, discuss how military systems target or victimize women or girls with violence, and/or devalue femininity more generally (ex. with sexist language, objectification, sexual violence, etc.).
