In You Throw Like a Girl, former Syracuse University quarterback and NFL veteran Don McPherson examines how the narrow definition of masculinity adversely impacts women and creates many "blind spots" that hinder the healthy development of men. Dissecting the strict set of beliefs and behaviors that underpin our understanding of masculinity, he contends that we don't raise boys to be men, we raise them not to be women.
Using examples from his own life, including his storied football career, McPherson passionately argues that viewing violence against women as a "women's issue" not just ignores men's culpability but conflates the toxicity of men's violence with being male. In You Throw Like a Girl, McPherson leads us beyond the blind spots and toward solutions, analyzing 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.

Insightful and Powerful
I am a 26 year old, 5'1" cis gender, heterosexual woman. This book gives bountiful insight to an array of topics that impact my every day life when it comes to safety and security, men's social concepts of women, and the inner workings of the mental and emotional aspects of (generally) heterosexual men. Powerful stories and supporting testimony to really bring the point of his platform full circle.
