Boys Behaving Badly

In the wake of the #MeToo movement, women’s voices are stronger than ever. Yet characters like John Proctor, Henry VIII and Falstaff remind us how patriarchal societies contribute to a male sense of privilege and entitlement. Our panel examines some of the sources and costs of this behaviour.
