Kimmel Gender Equality Good for Everyone

We’re watching Michael Kimmel’s TEDTalk “Why Gender Equality Is Good for Everyone — Men Included.” Please take some notes throughout the talk and keep the following discussion questions in mind:

  • Early in his talk, Kimmel asks “What do men have to do with gender equality?” What do you think? 
  • Kimmel claims “Privilege is invisible to those who have it.” How has your education at Stout and/or this class made this more visible?
  • Kimmel argues, “this is what objectivity looks like.” How do you understand this claim after writing your Wikipedia entry?
  • Kimmel provides a number of reasons why we should support gender equality. What do you think of these reasons?
