On Saturday, February 20, Rowdy Duncan from Phoenix College will present "Re-Thinking Masculinity" via Zoom at 11:00 a.m. Masculinity is generally defined as “the qualities — habits and traits that society considers to be appropriate for a man.” So then what’s the buzz about “toxic” masculinity? Are all parts of masculinity bad? Are there good parts of masculinity? What are some notions of masculinity that have changed in the past – how did they change – why did they change? Big boys don’t cry. Real men don’t eat quiche. Boys will be boys. Don’t be a sissy. Man-up. How might we rethink the role of masculinity in a changing world? Participants will explore these questions in a unique, interactive program that will improve their communication skills, facilitate learning, and help them navigate gender differences at work and at home. There is no charge to participate.

A brief recorded video introduction is followed by a live interactive discussion with Rowdy. Participants must register to attend the event by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
