Rebel Wisdom: Where Gillette Went Wrong

0.0 ·

Gillette's newest ad, 'The Best a Man Can Be', has created a social media firestorm in the last few days. Rebel Wisdom sat down to discuss the reaction, the cultural context behind it and their response to the ad. Drawing on their interviews with Warren Farrell, Cassie Jaye and their experience leading men's retreats, Rebel Wisdom asks whether the ad is helping men or toxic in and of itself.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
