Muskie School hosts forum on evolving lens of gender in modern culture

Bro Code panel discussion

On April 23, the Muskie School's Justice Policy program hosted a brown bag discussion on the portrayal of gender and violence in the media that featured a partial screening of The Bro Code: How Contemporary Culture Creates Sexist Men and a panel discussion with Dr. James Messerschmidt, USM Professor of Sociology; Dan Welter from USM Campus Safety Project; Drew Wing from Boys to Men; Matt Perry from Family Crisis Services; and Amy Raina from Sexual Assault Response Services of Southern Maine.

The event attracted over 50 attendees and included a diverse audience of USM students, faculty, and staff, as well as OLLI students and the general public. Participant discussion addressed the evolving lens of gender in modern culture and the ways in which the topic can be addressed by schools, parents, and the community.
