[quote quote=5012] But, we also need men as allies in this fight. They also have and will feel the effects of this culture (I don’t think men – I’m generalizing – can reach their full potential if this culture continues.) They can become imprisoned by the expectations of their sex and gender. In this fight, I’m heartened to see men in my social/work circles, who before didn’t think much about violence against women, actually start to speak up against social and sexual expectations of women and violence against women.
YES!!! THIS! We need this, and I have started to see some men in the mainstream media also speaking up. I’m amazed that they aren’t HORRIFIED enough to take a stand and say “NO” this is NOT how a good man acts and you will NOT act that way either. It can’t just be women’s voices.
