From an early age, boys are taught to be the boss, tough it out, be in control, show no emotion, and always be the winner. Studies have shown that these expectations lead to a culture where violence against women and girls is normalized. Join renowned educator, author, and activist Dr. Karsonya “Kaye” Wise Whitehead, Associate Professor at Loyola University Maryland, for a discussion with WJZ Anchor Denise Koch on dismantling toxic masculinity and setting boys up for healthy relationships with themselves and others.

Moderator: Denise Koch, WJZ Anchor

Featuring: Dr. Karsonya Wise Whitehead, Founder and Director of the Karson Institute
