A call to men: Tony Porter on TED.com

Posted by: Tedstaff

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.” (Recorded at TEDWomen, December 2010 in Washington, DC. Duration: 11:14)
