Interrupting the silence of adam.

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.

Why is it difficult for men to address each other on what is rightfully “not cool” and “not acceptable”?
