Interactive workshop on masculinities, health and social justice (1:15 - 4:45 pm) This workshop uses MSP film clips to spark group discussion on masculinities in relation to issues including men’s violence against women, violence between men, homo/transphobia, substance abuse, and intersections with other aspects of identity.
