Saed D. Hill is the Assistant Director of Prevention and Masculine Engagement at the Center for Awareness, Response, and Education (CARE) where he collaborates with Northwestern University to develop and implement strategies to improve masculine engagement in the prevention of violence.
Saed shares with us about how "traditional" masculinity puts boys and men in restrictive boxes, causing them to see relationships as transactional - which in turn can also lead to gendered violent acts.
He also explains how each of us can help address harmful and restrictive masculinity in our own spheres, while promoting real connection and granting permission towards healthy masculinity.
