In You Throw Like a Girl, former Syracuse University star quarterback and NFL veteran Don McPherson examines very narrow ways in which boys are taught to become men, almost invariably at the expense of women. Using examples from his own life, including his storied football career, McPherson passionately argues that we should no longer consider men s violence against women as a 'women's issue' but a 'men's issue.' In You Throw Like a Girl, McPherson analyses how we can engage men in a sustained dialogue, with a new set of terms that are aspirational and more accurately representative of the emotional wholeness of men.
