When he was a graduate student, sociologist Michael Kimmel realized that as a middle-class white man, he had naively worn blinders regarding issues of race, class and gender. He learned that “privilege is invisible to those who have it.” Three decades later, he lectures about the benefits of gender equality for women and men alike. getAbstract believes this witty, provocative talk will engage members of both sexes in the gender equality debate.
