Atherton-Zeman has made presentations in 35 states, Canada, China and the Czech Republic. His one-man play, sponsored by Wittenberg Departments of Women's Studies, Multicultural Programs, Athletics, Residence Life, Greek Life, and Health and Counseling, the Office of First-Year Experience, Concerned Black Students, the Gay Straight Alliance, and Student Senate, and local non-profit Project Woman, employs a multimedia approach that uses humor, celebrity male voice impressions and video clips that minimize defensiveness and promote learning and understanding.
"This is a unique opportunity for the Wittenberg community to come together and understand how violence and sexist behavior hurts the women in our community physically and emotionally," said Forest Wortham, Wittenberg Director of Multicultural Student Programs and the W.A.G.E. Womyn's Center. "It stunts the emotional growth of our young men."
NOMAS began as a spontaneous social movement in the early 1970s, and it remains "the oldest and most politically progressive network of men who share a hopeful perspective about men and masculinity," according to the organization's Web site. NOMAS encourages activism and analysis across a range of anti-sexist men's issues, anti-racism, pro-feminism, gay-affirmation and enhancement of men's lives. The organization has sponsored a National Conference on Men and Masculinity annually since 1982.
Voices of Men includes graphic depictions of violence that some people may find offensive. Admission is free. Questions should be directed to Wortham at (937) 327-7800 in the Office of Student Development.
