Recent events at UBC and in the city of Vancouver has brought the on-going problem of violence by men against women to the forefront of the news. Students at UBC are on high-alert. In conversation I notice that some men admit that its difficult to address the prevailing attitudes that perpetuate violence against others. Why is it difficult for men to address each other on what is rightfully “not cool” and “not acceptable”?
