In the wake of a van attack in Toronto in April 2018 Canadians were introduced to a term they had probably never heard before: incel (short for 'involuntary celibate'). Many were shocked at the death and destruction and wondered just what this movement was all about and how violent it was. A lot of people who never had anything to do with incels weighed in with their uninformed opinions.
We are going to change that. We have secured a talk with the one person who has not only looked at incel culture but spoken with hundreds of incels around the world: Naama Kates. If you want to learn more about the nexus between incels and violence you will not want to miss this PDI SET Morning Brief.
