LearnOutLoud.com Review

Tony Porter is the co-founder behind the non-profit A Call to Men: The National Association of Men and Women Committed to Ending Violence Against Women. In this TED Talk which he delivered at TEDWomen he talks about the socialization of men in society and how boys are taught to stay in the "man box" where men don't show emotion or cry. They're also taught to treat women like objects and to not act "like a woman". Born and raised in the Bronx, Porter tells some stories which changed his views on how men are raised and what inspired him to break out of his own "man box". This powerful talk is available on MP3 audio download and streaming video.


At TEDWomen, Tony Porter makes a call to men everywhere: Don't "act like a man." Telling powerful stories from his own life, he shows how this mentality, drummed into so many men and boys, can lead men to disrespect, mistreat and abuse women and each other. His solution: Break free of the "man box."
