Compared to girls, research shows that 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. The Mask You Live In asks: As a society, how are we failing our boys? – The Representation Project

Join the Reimagining Masculinity Initiative at UIC as we screen and hold a reception for this new documentary film. The Mask You Live In is one narrative that explores ideas of masculinity and the socialization of young boys.

GET INVOLVED

Before the film, join our ongoing dialogues on various issues of masculinity. Dialogues are held at the UIC Latino Cultural Center, Lecture Center B2, from 12pm-1pm on the Thursdays of Feb. 5th & 19th, and March 5th.

The Reimagining Masculinity Initiative at UIC is a collaborative effort between the Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change (CCUSC) to provide a space for individuals–with a focus on men–to discuss issues of masculinity and intersecting identities, engage in candid dialogue about privilege, and explore ways for men to be thoughtfully involved in changing systems of oppression.
