Title: Situating Toxic Masculinity, Disrupting Gender Violence: Theory and Practice

2:00 Session

Presenters: Dr. Laura O’Toole & Dr. Theo Greenblatt
We present an analysis of gender and power by exploring how toxic masculine identities and practice are situated in both social structure and lived experience. We focus on how the hegemony of masculinity and heteronormativity - as well as subordinated gender identities and practices - are reproduced in hyper masculinized spaces and show how one prototypical space – the US Navy – is committing values education, advocacy, and training resources toward promoting DEI - and disrupting sexual violence within its ranks.
