Beyond the Myth....

The way boys are brought up makes them hide

all their natural, vulnerable, empathic feelings

behind a mask of masculinity. 

~ Dr. William Pollack

The Ellevate OC Chapter is hosting a community screening of The Mask You Live In followed by a facilitated discussion. This meeting is open to Male Allies!  Enjoy intentional networking, appetizers and a cash bar at the beautiful Avenue of the Arts Hotel. 

Earlier this year Ellevate OC hosted a viewing and discussion of the award winning documentary - Miss Representation. It sparked deep exchanges on how "the media is selling the idea that girls' and women's value lies in their youth, beauty, and sexuality and not in their capacity as leaders."

The Mask You Live In follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America's narrow definition of masculinity.. Research shows that compared to girls, boys in the U.S. are more likely to be diagnosed with a behavior disorder, prescribed stimulant medications, fail out of school, binge drink, commit a violent crime, and/or take their own lives.
