Mel Gibson and a “Teachable Moment” about Rape in Celebrity Media Culture

Jackson Katz of The Huffington Post analyzes Mel Gibson’s despicable threats to his girlfriend. He also discusses how they are a symptom of the misogyny that still exists in our society and how, by exposing them, they can be changed: “Anti-rape educators around the world have Mel Gibson to thank for providing them with a truly global teachable moment in the wake of his violent, misogynist, racist tirade against his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva.”
