Michael Kimmel Speaks Out on the Yale Fraternity Incident

Michael Kimmel, a well-known masculinity scholar and author of the upcoming Seal Press book, FeMENism: A Guys Guide (Fall 2011) has written an editorial for the Ms. Magazine blog discussing the outcry over a group of Yale fraternity members who shouted disgusting and sexually explicit obscenities against women while marching through campus earlier this month. The students were pledges of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity.

We are very proud of his response. It's well worth the read, and can be viewed here.

Feministing also posted about the story, and Kimmel's piece, here.

Broad Recognition, a feminist publication written by Yale students, published a link to a petition urging Yale President Richard C. Levin to speak up and publicly denounce the actions of these students. To learn more, visit their website.
