View TED Talks and PSAs addressing important themes on the topic of sexual respect:
o Violence Against Women – It’s a Men’s Issue: Domestic violence and sexual abuse are often called "women’s issues.” But in this bold, blunt talk, Jackson Katz points out that these are intrinsically men’s issues — and shows how these violent behaviors are tied to definitions of manhood. A clarion call for us all — women and men — to call out unacceptable behavior and be leaders of change.
o Find your Voice Against Gender Violence: This talk begins with a personal story of sexual violence that may be difficult to listen to. But that’s the point, says citizen journalist Meera Vijayann: Speaking out on tough, taboo topics is the spark for change. Vijayann uses digital media to speak honestly about her experience of gender violence in her home country of India — and calls on others to speak out too.
o ONE STUDENT: One Student (onestudent.org) is a non-provide organization that provides students and their allies with programs, resources and opportunities to address sexual violence. Visit their website for blogs and videos created by students for students.
