Jackson Katz analyzes how men are taught what it means to be a man from media and from other male figures in their lives, especially fathers and coaches. Watch closely at how he proves that media leads the way in defining what it means to be a man. Also look at how the consequences of that definition have a devastating effect on young men, their self-esteem, and their relationships with women and other men.
You will be doing something similar when you analyze your commercials. After you analyze your commercials, you will explain the consequences to men and women of reinforcing stereotypes of masculinity in media. 
***Trigger Warning: This film contains graphic depictions of real-life violence and terroism.
