The Bro Code

Tom's new film is entitled "The Bro Code," an investigation into how media and society continue to reinforce sexism in men.  Keith breaks down a range of contemporary media forms that are saturated with sexism -- movies and music videos that glamorize misogyny; pornography that trades in the brutalization of women; comedy routines that make fun of sexual assault; and a slate of men's magazines and cable TV shows whose sole purpose is to revel in reactionary myths of American manhood.

Praise for the film:

"An excellent tool for classroom discussion about male socialization and the damaging impact of media and pornography on men and the women around them."
- Paul Kivel | Author, Men's Work, Boys Will Be Men, and the Young Men's Work curriculum

"The Bro Code is an important and engaging film that exposes how boys think about and react to the gendered, highly sexualized, and radicalized landscapes that they inhabit. The insights the film offers for feminism are truly important. One comes away from The Bro Code aware of how important it is to engage boys in anti-sexist education and to help them navigate a consumer society that has mainstreamed pornography and overrun the popular culture with demeaning images of women. This is a crucial addition to Gender Studies and to our understanding of how our culture indoctrinates boys into a sexist and sexually brutal world view. It is certainly a wake up call: we need to pay attention to the private lives of boys."
- Athena Devlin, Ph.D. | Co-Director, The Women's Center | St. Francis College, New York
