In a riveting analysis illustrated with archival footage and clips from news, sports, and entertainment media, Katz gives special attention to peer culture dynamics -especially make peer culture dynamics across race and ethnicity - that help to normalize sexism and misogyny while silencing other men in the face of abuse. The Bystander Moment also stresses the crucial importance of appealing to people not as potential perpetrators or passive challenging and changing the sexist cultural norms that too often lead to gender violence. The result is an indispensable educational tool in the ongoing struggle to prevent sexism and misogyny and promote gender equality.
