ABSTRACT
The article discusses stories of girls as victims of school shootings in the U.S., which point to a larger problem of violence against women. The stories of several shooters and suspects including Charles Carl Roberts IV, Duane Morrison, Mitchell Johnson and Andrew Golden, who abused and killed girls at their schools are discussed. Educator Jackson Katz explains that the issue is not just violence in the media but the construction of violent masculinity as a cultural form.
