VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN IS NOT A WOMAN’S ISSUE. VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN IS A HUMAN ISSUE AND IT REQUIRES ALL OF US PARTICIPATING.
Having spent the past three years working intimately with male athletes, Alexis Jones is redefining “manhood” one locker room at a time. After growing up a Texas tomboy with four older brothers and working in “the lion’s den of dudes” at Fox Sports and ESPN, Alexis takes an inspiring, hysterical and at times inappropriate approach to empowering young men to better respect and protect the girls and women in their lives with her exclusive locker room curriculum, ProtectHer. (Viewer discretion advised.)
How young men are being programmed to think about, to talk about, and to treat women.
1- Be brave enough to author your own life, come up with your own definitions and think for yourself.
2- Violence against women is not a women’s issue. Violence against women is a human issue and it requires all of us participating. Aexis invites us to:
- Become aware of our programming
- Broaden our definition of manhood
- Respect ourselves and others
3- Finally, she encourages us to have real talk with men we are inviting to join us. We have to give them real language and tools they can use in the moments we are asking them to be brave.
“Yo, I just want to make sure you’re cool with us having sex?”
Is a perfectly fine way of asking for consent.
Watch Alexis share her wisdom on how she has been recruiting men to be part of the solution, one locker room at a time.
