#1is2Many: A great PSA released by the White House featuring men speaking out against violence against women. What I like the most about the video is that so many famous athletes and managers from the ‘tough guy’ leagues – NFL, MLB, and NBA – take part in it, most notably Joe Torre who speaks about growing up with a violent dad. Most baseball and football players certainly aren’t feminist activists, progressive politicians or even liberals.
For more information – some truly disturbing stats on the topic – check out this post on feministing. But the ad is not only shown on political platforms. I also saw the PSA in the stream of highlights on mlb.com I watch every morning.
